“I’d like to extend my utmost gratitude to Compliant Pharmacy Alliance for their ongoing investment in the future of community-based pharmacy. They have financially supported Flip the Pharmacy since the very beginning,” said Randy McDonough, PharmD, MS, BCGP, BCPS, FAPhA, Director of Practice Transformation for the Flip the Pharmacy program. “CPA was the very first national program-wide sponsor and this renewed sponsorship will continue to help even more local community-based pharmacies expand their practice beyond filling prescriptions and toward improving patient health.”
The Flip the Pharmacy program has over 1,400 community pharmacies that have engaged in practice transformation, which are supported by 541 pharmacy coaches from 74 local Flip the Pharmacy teams.
“As I look to the future of community pharmacy, I feel it is more important than ever to remain committed to Flip the Pharmacy’s mission of pharmacy practice transformation,” shared Jay Blackburn, CEO of Compliant Pharmacy Alliance. “CPA members are many of the best pharmacies in the country, and Flip the Pharmacy continues to elevate them. We are proud to continue our investment in the Flip the Pharmacy program and in our pharmacies’ futures.”
As part of Flip the Pharmacy, pharmacy teams work to transform their community-based pharmacy practice beyond point-in-time, prescription-level transactional models toward longitudinal, patient-level care processes and value-based models. Practice transformation coaches use Change Packages and weekly webinars to work with the pharmacy teams to implement workflow innovations within key practice transformation domains that emphasize delivery of quality patient care and documentation in an eCare Plan platform. The Change Packages and other educational resources are free and publicly available to all pharmacies at www.flipthepharmacy.com.
“Compliant Pharmacy Alliance has long demonstrated their commitment to Flip the Pharmacy and their support has been instrumental in driving the practice transformation initiative,” said Troy Trygstad, Pharm.D., MBA, Ph.D., Executive Director of CPESN® USA. “Their continued investment furthers their dedication to support the deployment of tools and resources that bring enhanced opportunities and sustainability to community-based pharmacies across the country.”
“The Community Pharmacy Foundation greatly appreciates CPA’s renewed national sponsorship of Flip the Pharmacy,” added Kelly A. Brock, Pharm.D., Executive Director of the Community Pharmacy Foundation. “We see the tremendous impact this program has had on countless local community pharmacies, reshaping their practice to provide longitudinal care that extends far beyond traditional dispensing. With the generous support from CPA and other program sponsors, we will be able to scale Flip the Pharmacy even more which will help us achieve our mission to advance community pharmacy practice and better serve the patients in our communities."
This practice transformation effort would not be possible without the support from Founding Sponsor: Community Pharmacy Foundation (CPF); our National Program Sponsors: AmerisourceBergen, Compliant Pharmacy Alliance, Outcomes, and Parata Systems; our National Program Partners: NCPA Innovation Center and Parata Systems; and numerous Team Sponsors and Team Partners.
With support from CPF, the Coordinating Center for Flip the Pharmacy has developed Change Packages, educational webinars and a wide array of support materials for four progressions: Hypertension, Opioid Management, Immunizations/COVID-19, and Diabetes/Social Determinants of Health. These resources include best practices and workflow innovations that support practice transformation. All Flip the Pharmacy materials and resources are publicly available to any community pharmacy that is interested in transforming their practice and can be accessed at www.flipthepharmacy.com.
