Accountable Care Organization: Defining the Role Medication Management Practices and Pharmacists

 ACO Graphic   

The AMCP Special Projects Sub-Committee developed this resource guide to document and explore medication management practices of pharmacists in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). The resource guide also identifies additional methods that involve managed care pharmacists and/or other managed care practitioners within a patient-centered medical home concept. Lastly, the guide provides resources to clarify the differences between PCMH and ACO concepts that will establish a base-line concept of each resource market segment outlined above.
