The Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy Board of Directors and Foundation Trustees in April green lighted a four-part research agenda that will spotlight evidentiary gaps in the managed care pharmacy sector.
AMCP says it and the AMCP Foundation Joint Research Committee proposed the research agenda.
According to an email from AMCP, the following are the four research priority areas:
- Real-world evidence to inform managed care pharmacy decision-making;
- Value-based models in managed care pharmacy to address total cost of care;
- Impact of benefit design or utilization management strategies on patient outcomes; and
- Impact of direct patient care services provided by managed care pharmacy on patient outcomes.
More information will reportedly be featured in the upcoming issue of the Journal of Managed Care and Specialty Pharmacy.
