How Pharmacy Measures Support Value-Based Care


The term "value" is used interchangeably across our healthcare system.

Pharmacy Times spoke with Micah Cost, PharmD, MS, PQA Chief Executive Officer, about how pharmacy measures can support value-based care.

Cost: So value means something different for every patient, every provider every plan, that the term "value" is used interchangeably across our healthcare system. Whenever you look at these measures that really promotes valuing medication access to talking about patients having access to medication through adherence, but it also it brings the pharmacy into the fold as far as a healthcare provider and access point we've seen during the pandemic, that access to care is maintained consistency with pharmacies, where patients may lose access in other areas, or pharmacies have always maintained access to care. They've been accessible to patients, and so these measures really kind of cement the value of pharmacy and bring the pharmacy into the fold in terms of using unique data sources.
