1 Patient Safety and Clinical Pharmacy Services Collaborative (PSPC)! Karen C. Williams, MBA, PharmD Office of Pharmacy Affairs Health Resources and Services Administration June 24, 2011

2 Questions to run on 2  What is the PSPC?  What is the future of PSPC?  How can participants enroll in PSPC? 2

3 What we’re seeing everyday… 3  Complex, high-cost patients with chronic conditions receive many, often high-risk, medications from an array of unconnected sources.  This often does not result in health improvement, and in many cases, creates unsafe and sometimes deadly situations.

4 Call for action 4

5 The Solution in a Nutshell 5  Providing an additional modest level of clinical pharmacy services necessary to properly manage these complex, high-risk patients and their medication processes through an interdisciplinary care team… …is key to rapidly improving patients’ health and providing better, safer, patient-centered care.

6 Why Clinical Pharmacy Services? 6  Medications play an integral role in managing chronic conditions  Clinical pharmacy services improve health outcomes and patient safety across a range of conditions  Published research on the economic benefit of CPS suggests cost effectiveness 6
