Directions in Pharmacy, brought to you by Pharmacy Times, is a new supplement series that examines
the effects of health care reform on pharmacy and focuses on navigating the new landscape as provisions
of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are integrated into health plans nationwide and new models of care delivery
emerge. The first of this 4-part series debuted in April 2013
and provides a road map for pharmacists to follow as the industry rapidly evolves.
With the guidance of our guest co-editor, Troy Trygstad, PharmD, PhD, MBA, director of the
Network Pharmacist Program and Pharmacy Projects for Community Care of North Carolina, and Pharmacy Times
Editor-in-Chief Fred M. Eckel, RPh, MS, this new series is designed to help everyone who works in pharmacy
better understand the nature and magnitude of the changes underway in the health care system.
