As hospitals and health systems transition to value-based care, the pharmacy can play a pivotal role in lowering risk and improving outcomes, as well as reducing costs. The pharmacist plays a central role, working with both clinicians and patients to foster medication therapy management, reduce unnecessary readmissions and adhere to evidence-based care. Health Forum convened a panel of hospital executives in Washington, D.C., to discuss leveraging pharmacy services to drive value. The panel highlights the role of pharmacy in population health management and in supporting care across the continuum.
