Project Proposal: Analysis of Provider-generated Revenue and Impact on Medication Reconciliation from a Pharmacist-led Chronic Care Management Service
Emily Sotelo, PharmD currently serves as the PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident at Realo Discount Drugs in Jacksonville, North Carolina. She graduated from the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy at Chapel Hill.
Pharmacists must look for alternative means of reimbursement beyond just dispensing. Community pharmacists are in an excellent position to offer clinical services such as chronic care management yet these types of programs remain limited in community pharmacy settings. In order to expand opportunities to partner with providers and other healthcare professionals, we need to recognize that increased revenue remains a top priority for everyone involved in patient care. Pharmacists need to highlight the sources of revenue that our services can generate in addition to positive patient outcomes.
She is excited to see the data from this project expand community pharmacist-led chronic care management services and provider contracts. This will allow pharmacists to continue advocating for quality patient care through innovative clinical services.
"I am honored to receive this grant and for the opportunity to work for an innovative pharmacy that continues to advance clinical services in the community pharmacy setting."
