care delivery team consultation

Practice & Care Delivery Transformation

This group will provide guidance and recommendations that will enable broad practice adoption of a systematic approach to medication use (CMM) throughout the continuum of care. The group will work to ensure a patient can engage and confidently be assured that the medications or combinations thereof are in fact optimized to meet their unique needs (genetic, personal, social, cultural) within an aligned and constantly “learning”  health care delivery system.
