Five for Friday, February 25: Celebrating Success in Advancing Medication Use Quality

Loren KirkWe are 10 weeks away from the 2022 PQA Annual Meeting. I am excited to get back together with each of you for our first in-person annual meeting since 2019.

Our members have continued to partner with each other throughout the pandemic to improve the quality of care, but we all miss the personal connections and innovative ideas that emerge when we learn, network and engage together at the PQA Annual Meeting.

The meeting provides organizations the occasion to increase brand exposure, business opportunities and lead generation. Review the sponsorship opportunities available to you at the most concentrated gathering of professionals working to improve medication safety, adherence, appropriate use and quality.

This week, we are highlighting our members' insights on positive changes post-pandemic, building partnership and reducing hospital readmissions. If you have work you'd like for us to spotlight in an upcoming Five For Friday, send us an email

Turning COVID Challenges into Positive Change

AssureCare's Tara Pfund, from a conversation with NCPA Michele Belcher, outlines three essential efforts to turn the pharmacy profession’s COVID challenges into positive long-term change: implement technology to save time and coordinate care, initiate new clinical services to generate alternative revenue streams, and shift the pharmacy mindset from reactive to proactive workflow models. 

Building Community Partnerships  
PQA Board member Amina Abubakar, a network luminary for CPESN USA, has established collaborative partnerships with medical providers in the community to expanded clinical services for patients, such as annual wellness visits, medication-assisted treatment for persons with substance use disorder, remote physiological monitoring, behavioral health integration and chronic care management.

Reducing Hospital Readmissions with Better Adherence
emocha Health shares published research that links medication adherence and rehospitalizations. Through improved coordination and communication, each player in the hospital framework can help advance toward a future in which the overall system—and patients—reap the greatest health, quality, and financial benefits.
