Professional and Clinical Affairs

APCI’s Professional and Clinical Affairs department is exploring many ways for APCI members to not only survive, but also to thrive, as the role of pharmacy grows in the world of health care.

Professional and Clinical Affairs is investigating many programs and services to assist our members in the clinical arena, such as adherence programs, MTM, immunization training, and diabetes management, just to name a few.

The focus on clinical pharmacy will help increase a pharmacy’s CMS Star ratings, improve patient health, and bring new revenue streams to pharmacies. At independent pharmacies, an increase in quality means better patient care and value. And while we work with our members to increase their Star ratings, Professional and Clinical Affairs is also working with American Pharmacy Network Solutions (APNS) to create model plans for Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) that will enhance their overall Star ratings. Additionally, APNS and Professional and Clinical Affairs work closely together on contractual issues, as well as ways to best provide information to member pharmacies.
