Where Pharmacy Fits Into Your Population Health Strategy

Share this post:

Population health management strategies generally include initiatives to improve clinical outcomes and decrease the cost of care.  Is there a role for pharmacy to contribute to the successful attainment of those goals?  Only if medication management contributes to those goals, which most would agree it does.

As seen in both inpatient and outpatient team based care models, pharmacists are an integral part of the care continuum. From collaborative medication management to clinical decision support to patient engagement, pharmacists play a key role in a multidisciplinary team approach to delivering integrated patient care.  Why would population health be any different?  Population health management is a complex and diverse challenge which, like individual patient care, is best managed by interdisciplinary teams each bringing a unique perspective and expertise.  Does pharmacy have a seat at the table in your population health strategy?

During this webinar Tina Moen, PharmD, Deputy Chief Health Officer at IBM Watson Health shared insights with attendees on:

  • The benefits of including pharmacy in your population health management strategy
  • How collaborative medication management can positively affect outcomes
  • How cognitive computing is positioned to support pharmacists and patients with issues like medication adherence
