The 4th PQA-Community Pharmacy Foundation Virtual Summit
Monday, April 26, 2021, 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM EDT
Category: Performance Measurement

PQA, in collaboration with the Community Pharmacy Foundation (CPF), launched an initiative to identify and prioritize measure concepts that demonstrate the value of community pharmacy practice. The PQA-Community Pharmacy Foundation will host the fourth Virtual Summit to further the conversation.

The one-year project began in September 2020 and includes this multi-meeting summit that brings more than 50 thought leaders together to identify and prioritize measure concepts that are responsive to the needs of all participants in value-based arrangements. Participants include pharmacists and other providers, payers, employers, technology vendors, and patients. This project will contribute to fair and meaningful measurement of pharmacy performance in value-based arrangements.

During the first phase of the project (September-December 2020), summit participants identified a list of 15 pharmacy measure concepts, and then assessed each using the criteria of importance, feasibility, and usability to prioritize and gain consensus on a refined list of eight high-priority measure concepts. The project is moving into its second phase, to complete a systematic evaluation of feasibility, and to explore use cases for the prioritized concepts. The PQA team will engage payer, pharmacy, and technology vendor stakeholders to assess the availability, standardization, and interoperability of data elements required to calculate each measure concept. PQA also will conduct an accompanying series of deep-dive interviews.

If your organization is interested in participating in the feasibility evaluation, which includes completing an Excel template, please contact PQA at [email protected].
