NCPA videos examine changing healthcare models

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Community Pharmacists Association has launched a five-part video series that looks at how community pharmacies can adapt to changing healthcare models and improve patient care. Topics include the role of technology, marketing, and new models of payment, according to a press release. “Pharmacy is changing and the shift toward quality standards and value-based patient care presents opportunities, as well as challenges,” said NCPA CEO B. Douglas Hoey. “Community pharmacies are solution companies—every day, they are adapting and evolving to fill gaps in care.” The videos, which are sponsored by H.D. Smith, are each worth 0.1 CEU. Pharmacists must complete a pre-read and post-test before and after each video to receive credit. FMI.
