PQA's Primary Roles

MAY 23, 2019

Laura Cranston, RpH, CEO of Pharmacy Quality Alliance discusses PQA's primary roles during the Pharmacy Quality Alliance (PQA) Annual Meeting in Baltimore, MD.


Laura Cranston, RpH:  PQA likes to think of itself not strictly as a measure developer but as a full-fledged quality organization, and as such, we engage in 4 primary activities: measure development and implementation is one, education around health care quality issue, research, and then the hallmark of PQA is that we are a neutral convener of a multistakeholder base. Often times when you are  grappling with difficult quality issues the  ability of PQA to convene a roundtable base of subject matter experts across stakeholders is really our key distinctive in the marketplace.
