Session Description:

The evolutionary shift of the U.S. health care system from fee-for-service to value-based can be safely characterized as non-linear, disruptive, and carries with it highly variable levels of risk for different kinds of healthcare stakeholders. Understanding key marketplace trends in this environment and having a proverbial seat at the table are crucial factors to enhancing capabilities towards shaping the emerging landscape to align with achieving strong patient and population health outcomes, doing so affordably, and meeting the needs of the health care professionals responsible for delivering and influencing the care. This session will cover current and emerging quality measures related to pharmacy practice and discuss implications for independent community pharmacy practice.
