CVS Health executive says pharmacists are integral part of ACO teams

February 16, 2016

Mary Langowski, Executive VP for Strategy, Corporate Development, Government Affairs at CVS Health, writes in The Hill that pharmacists are uniquely positioned to drive positive behavioral changes and favorable patient outcomes. CVS Health has partnerships with ACOs to identify patients who could benefit from interventions designed to improve medication adherence, reduce gaps in care and help reduce overall pharmacy spend, she writes. Without pharmacists as an integrated part of the ACO clinical team, she adds, the industry is "missing major opportunities to continue to transform healthcare for patients."
