The healthcare system is changing! Reimbursement for services is shifting from fee-for-service to pay-for-performance. This means providers are being held accountable for the quality of care they provide and the impact they have on the health of their patients. ​

The Future of Pharmacy.

Great news! We are finally shifting to a model in which we are reimbursed for our clinical expertise! Payers are realizing the value of pharmacists as important members of the healthcare team and are beginning to reimburse pharmacists for the impact we can have on patient care and outcomes. 

In order to have the positive impacts on patient care and be reimbursed for our services, we need to know how to perform clinical services, apply our clinical knowledge, and implement clinical programs in the community pharmacy setting. 

This course is designed for the practical application of clinical skills and protocols in the community pharmacy!
