Value-Based Models: How to Be at the Table, Not on the Menu 


Value-based payment models are becoming the norm—and disrupting every area of pharmacy practice. Decision makers in health plans and value-based programs such as accountable care organizations (ACOs) and patient-centered medical homes recognize pharmacists’ value and are seeking to include or contract with them. What are the benefits? What are the risks? Learn from experts how to position yourself for success in any agreement or contract.
