"The increasing prevalence of complex, chronic conditions has profound implications on the growing demand and cost of health care. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation is testing data-driven approaches to care delivery and payment that are drawn from innovative practices of health care providers and other partners in the health care community. The shift from fee-for-service to value-based care and performance-based payment places increased priority on improved outcomes at lower costs." - Kathy Pham, PharmD

HealthPartners is an integrated health care organization-serving more than 1.8 million medical and dental health plan members nationwide.
Comprehensive medication management is available as a benefit to all HealthPartners members with pharmacy benefits through HealthPartners (Medicare, Medicaid, Commercial) and is optional for employers who carve out their pharmacy benefits to an outside PBM. It is a benefit-no minimum criteria required for participation. High-risk candidates are targeted for services (invitations, financial engagement incentives for network providers) utilizing HealthPartners pharmacy and medical claims information and EHR data (when available) in a proprietary algorithm.
During this webinar learn more about a better way to manage medications from GTMRx distinguished fellow Mary McClurg, PharmD, professor and executive vice dean-chief academic officer at UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, and Annie Ideker, MD, senior medical advisor - clinician experience and senior medical advisor - clinician/patient relationships (ambulatory) at HealthPartners.
