GTMRx Executive Roundtable Virtual Event
Optimizing Medication Use for Accountable Care Success

April 13, 2022 | 10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. ET

We are convening this meeting in partnership with the Institute for Advancing Health Value to seek guidance from individuals whose work and opinions we value.

During the day we will hear from a variety of experts. Attendees will participate in facilitated discussions designed to elicit recommendations and concrete suggestions to enhance and advance accountable patient care services. These discussions will guide our work as we advocate for personalized, team-based, comprehensive primary care and specialist models that offer a more coordinated, systematic approach to medication use – saving lives and saving money.

GTMRx is a growing coalition of over 1600 members from 1000 companies focused on optimizing medication use through CMM in practice. Your perspective about the importance and value of accountable relationships in value-based programs will be most valuable.

Executive Roundtable Goals: 

  • New approaches to managing the poly problem (individuals with multiple chronic conditions, on multiple medications, seeing multiple clinicians).
  • Building awareness of the value and opportunity to optimize medication use through advanced primary care through a set of comprehensive services among ACO organizations.
  • Highlighting effective ACO integrated sites of care demonstrating chronic condition management and CMM in practice that include clinical pharmacists as part of a broader health care team.
  • Offering insight into collaborative practice arrangements with physicians/ program impact on cost, quality and appropriateness of care.
  • Illustrating impact of patient and provider engagement through use of technology to ensure close collaboration and communications between the interprofessional team, to include the clinical pharmacist.
  • Outline alignment of service models with reimbursement impacting total cost of care (paying for a team/ paying for a service/ opportunity within existing CMMI models).
  • Identifying barriers to expansion and adoption of team-based, person-centered models that effectively manage those with multiple chronic conditions, receiving multiple medications from multiple providers (care coordination, management of care and medication plan).
