Yes they can.

With the specialized training they receive, clinical pharmacists are an invaluable resource for primary care providers. In my own experience, having a clinical pharmacist on the medical team helps to achieve quality performance goals and improve financial performance.

Vertically integrated systems figured this out years ago and have been using clinical pharmacists to improve Medicare 5 Star performance, achieve share savings in their risk contracts, and increase provider productivity & sophistication.

If you don't already have your own integrated pharmacists managing complex medication regimens for your sickest patients, please consider contacting me. We can help.

Clinical Pharmacists do more than dispense medications. They help manage the complex managed care tasks related to chronic disease and medication management.
