The ASHP Specialty Pharmacy State of Practice in Hospitals and Health Systems – Future Directions Summit will bring together hospital and health-system pharmacists, technicians, nurses, payers, and others to discuss how to advance health-system specialty pharmacy practice to optimize patient health outcomes.
The interprofessional summit will feature focused discussions and recommendations on key areas in specialty pharmacy medication management, including addressing market trends, shifts in the payer market, partnerships with manufacturers, emerging specializations from accreditors, and the impact on affordability, accessibility, and outcomes related to specialty pharmacy and patient care.
Summit objectives include:
- Identify the critical elements for successful patient access, affordability, and outcomes of care involving specialty pharmacy designated medications.
- Develop recommendations that meet the patient outcomes and business measures and accountabilities of the various partners involved in the diagnosis, care planning, medication management, payment, and reimbursement of specialty pharmacy designated medications.
- Develop recommendations that optimize all aspects of the patient journey and quality of life associated with the use of specialty pharmacy designated medications.
- Discuss a shared vision for value-based care that will support a sustainable U.S. healthcare model(s) and the interface with specialty pharmacy designated medications.
Outcomes from the summit, including recommendations for advancing practice and demonstrating impact, will be submitted for publication in AJHP and support the development of ASHP educational content for future webinars and meetings.
