Practice & Care Delivery Transformation Workgroup

Practice and Care Delivery Transformation Workgroup:

  • Identify evidence to promote the value of optimized medication use for payors, consumers and providers.
  • Develop tools to engage and educate key stakeholders (patient advocacy organizations, professional groups, physicians, caregivers, care teams, consumers, pharmacists, and employers) to gain support for a standardized definition and process for CMM.
  • Further develop the essential structures and language of value-based agreements within CMM services.
  • Offer guidance and use cases to key stakeholders on contract standards and the consistent practice of CMM in clinical care.
  • Identify leadership and champions to ensure more rapid practice transformation nationwide.

Evidence-Based Resources Subgroup

Areas of Further Work:

  1. Develop a library of evidence-based resources to be used by a variety of stakeholders which allows team members & stakeholders to understand the value of CMM on the quadruple aim (improved patient experience, improved patient outcomes, reduce cost and improved clinician experience). These resources should be housed in the CMM implementation tool designed by the best practices subgroup and disseminated through that mechanism as well.
    • Resource 1: Evidence for the clinician or practice either implementing CMM into practice or re-designing/strengthening their current CMM practice
    • Resource 2: Foundational evidence needed for stakeholders (payors/health care leaders) to understand the value of CMM
  2. Based on evaluation, determine future needs/gaps for CMM research as well as needed tools based on evaluated library of evidence for each of the above aims and the role of GTMRx to close said gap.
  3. Evaluate the need for and feasibility of developing a summative review of currently available CMM literature focused on the quadruple aim of health care. If the need is present, establish a task force to author develop and write the review, working on behalf of the GTMRx Institute.
  4. Evaluate current evidence related to specific clinical metrics for medication optimization and team-based care that are centered around the quadruple aim and applicable to different stakeholder subgroups (e.g., patients and care givers, payers, health system leaders, providers and health care team members, patient advocacy and professional groups).
