Value-Based Care Models and Pharmacist Reimbursement
Value-based care has the potential to revolutionize the way pharmacists practice. The success of value-based programs are contingent upon patient outcomes, which are often influenced by the medication therapy problems. Thus, pharmacists are well positioned to be key members of value-based care teams to address complex medication therapy problems in patients with CKD. Value-based kidney care is in its infancy, so it is vital for the pharmacy workforce to be prepared and integrate into these programs.
By the end of this module, learners will be able to:
- Describe value-based models of care in nephrology practice
- Identify opportunities for pharmacists to provide patient centered CMM to patients with CKD
- Utilize reimbursement strategies to integrate a pharmacist into nephrology practices to optimize medication management in patients with CKD
