How Highmark's pharmacists are teaming with primary care docs for better medication management
Share Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Print Highmark’s population health pharmacy and its health analytics experts are teaming up to improve medication management for diabetes patients.
The new initiative focuses on members with diabetes who are enrolled in the insurers’ True Performance value-based care program, which includes 2,000 practices and more than 2 million Highmark members.
Once the analytics teams flag potential medications that can be adjusted or discontinued, Highmark deploys its pharmacists to work directly with primary care doctors to disseminate the latest clinical guidance on those diabetes medications. The goal, officials said, is to avoid adverse drug events and boost adherence.
