Pharmacists Continue to Improve, Complete Standardized Measures


The challenges in pharmacy are really a lack of standardization.

Pharmacy Times spoke with Lisa Hines, PQA Chief Quality and Innovation Officer, about the challenges of new data sources.

Hines: Absolutely, there are some organizations that are already doing what we're envisioning. But what we need to do is get to scalability, and the challenges are really a lack of standardization. And so we need to be looking at the same information, you know, it's garbage in, garbage out. And then also interoperability there needs to be exchange of information so that pharmacists are not flying blind, so to speak, and trying to improve outcomes. So you know, the data infrastructure is slowly getting there. And we just need to keep shooting for aspirational measures and push to get everybody doing these standardized measures.
