Addressing Racial Health Disparities 

AMCP's Susan Cantrell, a PQA Board member, authored a viewpoint on their strategic priority to address racial inequities in health care. AMCP hosted a partnership forum on racial health disparities in medication use where participants agreed that we must acknowledge that racism impacts health care.

Leveraging Technology-Based Telepharmacy to Improve Medication Adherence
AdhereHealth's Jason Rose authored an AJMC article on the need for Medicare Advantage plans to leverage data-driven insights and omnichannel telepharmacy software to guide meaningful interactions with high-risk members and boost Star Ratings performance. High-risk patients will benefit from personalized outreach that addresses their unique barriers to care.

Managing Chronic Disease with Community Pharmacists 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention worked with academic researchers to understand the extent to which pharmacists are and could be used to provide services for chronic disease. Researchers explored opportunities and barriers for community pharmacist provision of chronic disease management service before, during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
