Impact

Impact

  • All these factors have combined to drive critical discussions regarding change within the health-system pharmacy profession

  • But, where do we go from here?


Pharmacy practice model initiative ppmi

Pharmacy Practice Model Initiative (PPMI)

  • Launched and coordinated by ASHP and the ASHP Research and Education Foundation

  • The goal of this initiative is to significantly advance the health and well-being of patients

    • Develop and disseminate a futuristic practice model that supports the most effective use of pharmacists as direct patient care providers

  • PPMI. Available at <www.ashp.org>


The purpose of the ppmi

The Purpose of the PPMI

Describes how pharmacy department resources are deployed to provide care

One size does not fit all

Does include:

How pharmacists practice and provide care to patients

How technicians are involved to support care

Use of automation/technology in the medication use system

AJHP 2010;67:542


The purpose of the ppmi1

The Purpose of the PPMI

  • Create a framework

  • Determine services

  • Identify emerging technologies

  • Develop a template

  • Implement change

  • PPMI. Available at <www.ashp.org>


The purpose of the ppmi2

The Purpose of the PPMI

  • Create a Framework

    • Create a framework for a pharmacy practice models that ensure provision of safe, effective, efficient, accountable, and evidence-based care for all hospital/health system patients

  • Determine Services

    • Determine patient care-related services that should be consistently provided by departments of pharmacy in hospitals and health systems and increase demand for pharmacy services by patients/caregivers, healthcare professionals, healthcare executives, and payer

  • PPMI. Available at <www.ashp.org>


The purpose of the ppmi3

The Purpose of the PPMI

  • Identify Emerging Technologies

    • Identify the available technologies to support implementation of practice models, and identify emerging technologies that could impact the practice model

  • Develop a Template

    • Support the optimal utilization and deployment of hospital and health-system pharmacy resources through development of a template for practice models that are operational, practical, and measurable

  • Implement Change

    • Identify specific actions pharmacy leaders and staff should take to implement practice model change including determination of the necessary staff (pharmacy leaders, pharmacists, and technicians) skills and competencies required to implement this model)

  • PPMI. Available at <www.ashp.org>


Types of models

Types of Models

  • Drug-distribution centeredmodel

    • defined as “mostly distributive pharmacy with limited clinical services”

  • Patient-centeredintegrated model

    • defined as a “clinical generalist model with limited differentiation of roles”

    • nearly all pharmacists have distributive and clinical responsibilities

  • Clinical-specialist-centered model

    • defined as “separate distributive and clinical specialist roles”


Major ppmi themes

Major PPMI Themes

Move pharmacists closer to the patient

Multidisciplinary care

Responsibility for safe use of medications and ensuring quality

Well-developed technician workforce

Wide-spread use of technology


Considerations for the rural hospital

Considerations for the Rural Hospital

Rural hospitals face unique challenges in implementing new and innovative practice models

“The capacity of 1”

How much can we do with limited resources?

Where do our priorities lie?

Ensuring we practice at “the top of our license”

Teamwork among all professions is essential!


Beyond the rhetoric

Beyond the Rhetoric


Rural health today current state

Rural Health Today –Current State

  • Pharmacy in rural health settings differs from larger settings

    • Limited personnel

    • Limited hours of operation

    • Limited technology

  • But, boundless opportunity!

    • Need to be strategic on how to adapt principles of PPMI to rural settings

  • But first…where are we now?
