Recommendations from leaders of the Pharmacy Accountability Measures Work Group
The ASHP Pharmacy Accountability Measures (PAM) Work Group is charged with identification of pharmacy-related quality measures that health-system pharmacists can use to establish accountability for and demonstrate value in outcomes.
Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, they applied their vision to encourage their colleagues on the front lines to think beyond the COVID-19 crisis and look towards future service expansion to meet the needs of patients, communities, and the healthcare system as a whole.
They identified key areas where pharmacy can demonstrate the impact of expanded pharmacist and pharmacy services during the COVID crisis including: medication adherence, emergency preparedness, and medication shortages.
