Launched in 2015, this Collaborative Process Improvement initiative connects clinical pharmacists with Patient-Centered Medical Home practices to improve patient understanding, compliance and management of their medication plans. By integrating pharmacists into the medical home team, participants in the initiative aim to improve coordination of care, particularly for patients with multiple medication needs or chronic conditions. Currently, the collaborative is focused on patients with hypertension, hyperlipidemia and diabetes.
The Michigan Pharmacists Transforming Care and Quality program (MPTCQ) has 16 participating physician organizations, and will phase in other participating physician organizations within the next few years.
As a collaborative initiative, participants will collect and analyze data to develop process guidelines and best practices for patient education, medication management and more.
