Since 1979, state pharmacy practice laws have begun to allow pharmacists to provide advanced levels of care in collaboration with prescribers. These might be termed medication therapy management, collaborative practice, comprehensive medication management and other variations. Invariably, pharmacists working closely with prescribers and patients in care of chronic disease have achieved dramatic results including improvement in surrogate markers, decreased rates of secondary large organ disease, decreased mortality, decreased hospitalizations, and as a result decreased spending.1-28
This paper will discuss the profound impact of advanced practice models on patient care and the health care system, the current status of New York’s collaborative drug therapy management law, the comprehensive medication management proposal in Governor Cuomo’s fiscal year 2018 Budget bill, and its potential impact on morbidity and mortality when applied to chronic disease.
