PHAM, Katherine. Alternative payment approaches for advancing comprehensive medication management in primary care. Pharmacy Pract (Granada) [online]. 2020, vol.18, n.4, 2238.  Epub Mar 15, 2021. ISSN 1886-3655.

The increasing prevalence of complex, chronic conditions has profound implications on the growing demand and cost of health care. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation is testing data-driven approaches to care delivery and payment that are drawn from innovative practices of health care providers and other partners in the health care community. The shift from fee-for-service to value-based care and performance-based payment places increased priority on improved outcomes at lower costs. To advance comprehensive medication management, pharmacists need to understand the opportunities in the evolving value-based payment models and align medication optimization with the specific goals and incentives of these models.
