The Patient Safety and Clinical Pharmacy Services Collaborative (PSPC), sponsored by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), is a breakthrough effort to improve the quality of health care across America by integrating evidence-based clinical pharmacy services into the care and management of high-risk, high-cost, complex patients. In its third year, the PSPC is continuing the rapid spread of leading practices found to most effectively improve patient safety and health outcomes in a health home model, and is building on the lessons learned and successes while expanding the work to a greater national scale.
PSPC uses a fast-paced, iterative improvement method designed to support teams in testing and spreading leading practices found to significantly improve health outcomes and patient safety through the integration of clinical pharmacy services. Key to the method’s effectiveness is that the leading practices are drawn from real practice in organizations that have achieved outstanding results. Learn from PSPC National Faculty Co-Chairs Kyle Peters PharmD and Mark Loafman MD about the current success of the PSPC and the positive impact on teams working to deliver care in a coordinated way.
