In this episode, we interview Melissa Skelton Duke who is the Executive Director, Population Health Pharmacy Solutions at Banner Health a health system based in Phoenix, AZ. She covers the following topics:
– What is population health, and whose responsibility is it to manage populations to improve their health?
– What are some of the ways that healthcare payers, including CMS, are partnering with healthcare providers to address population health needs at the direct patient-care level?
– What are some of the ways that pharmacists, pharmacies, or health-systems can market their services and receive payment for medication management services that improve population health?
What advice do you have for pharmacists who want to learn more about population health and how they can become engaged in population health management programs and services?
