2023 Incentive Grant Recipient: Rachel Schneider, PharmD
Project Proposal: Impact of a Community Pharmacist Led-Interventional Diabetes Management Program on Patient Decision Making and Population Health Measures
Rachel Schneider, PharmD currently serves as the PGY2 Community Pharmacist Resident at Kroger Health/University of Cincinnati, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
"Community pharmacy is evolving from a place of product reimbursement and fee-for-service models to pay-for-performance models in which quality, value, and patient outcomes are measured and incentivized. With this evolution and the growing strain of the shortage of primary care providers, it is critical that community pharmacies develop mechanisms for providing patient centered interventional care that support population health outcomes and quality performance measures. The aim of this study is to determine the impact of a pharmacist-led interventional diabetes management program on patient decision making for receiving services that support preventive care and disease control to ultimately improve the quality of diabetes care."
"I am most excited to see this innovative program come to fruition in a community setting that prioritizes patient centered care."
"I am honored to receive an Incentive Grant this year and am excited for the opportunity to initiate a novel population health service comprised of interventions designed specifically to identify and target patients with gaps in care related to diabetes. Pharmacists are the most accessible health care providers and are well-positioned to support services that promote value-based care."
