Project Proposal: Examining Barriers and Best Practices Related to Documentation of Electronic Care Plans in Independent Community Pharmacies in Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Ohio
Amy Catherine Love Baggett, PharmD, currently serves as the PGY1 Community-based Pharmacy Resident at Palm Beach Atlantic University, West Palm Beach, FL and Atlantis Pharmacy, Atlantis, FL.
The goal of this project is to identify barriers and best practices related to documentation of electronic care (eCare) plans within independent community pharmacies who are members of the Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Networks (CPESN) of Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Ohio.
The expansion of pharmacist training programs moving beyond product distribution towards comprehensive, patient-centered care has impacted the healthcare ecosystem in many ways. However, there remains an opportunity to improve in timely and efficient documentation of patient care services.
It is no secret that independent community pharmacies have faced many challenges in recent years. However, community pharmacies have a unique opportunity to express value within health care teams and for third party payers through eCare planning. Exploring methods to streamline, elevate, and increase eCare plan documentation through addressing barriers and sharing best practices gives us an opportunity to deeply impact both the profession and our patients.
