Pharmacy Quality Alliance | Strategic Alliance Partners

PQA, the Pharmacy Quality Alliance, is a national quality organization dedicated to improving medication safety, adherence and appropriate use. A measure developer, researcher, educator and convener, PQA’s quality initiatives support better medication use and high-quality care. A non-profit organization with more than 250 diverse members across healthcare, PQA was established in 2006 as a public-private partnership with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services shortly after the implementation of the Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Benefit. PQA was created because prescription drug programs were a major area of health care where there was no organization or national program focused on quality improvement.
