Health reform means collaborating with multiple different provider types in multiple different settings. How will this change the practice of pharmacy—and are you ready for the new landscape? Troy Trygstad, PharmD, PhD, MBA, co-editor of the Directions in Pharmacy supplements, discusses a flexible patient-centric approach to health care and the team approach that brings the best results in terms of adherence, cost, and benefits to the patient. Look for an in-depth discussion of care coordination in this second supplement, coming this summer.
