Giving the Patient a Choice: Democratizing Medical Service
Home > Presentation > Giving the Patient a Choice: Democratizing Medical Service
With the expansion of healthcare that is attendant on the passage of the Affordable Care Act and the aging of the population generally as the baby boomers hit 65 at the rate of 10,000 per day, there will be a premium on providing high quality, readily accessible, affordable healthcare. This presentation will look at the emergence of highly effective healthcare teams and the role that pharmacists will play in one key aspect of this process: medication therapy management. It will focus on the recent developments in this area of care and also on the advantages of locating these teams in non-traditional sites that are accessible to patients seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day.
