CCNC-collaborated pharmacist care plan tool goes national
CCNC helped pioneer the Pharmacist eCare Plan (PeCP), a platform for pharmacists to improve care coordination with patients outside the doctor’s office. The platform, which reduces redundant manual data entries, automates clinical quality measurements, and speeds data sharing between pharmacies and CCNC. The program was piloted in North Carolina and is now operating nationwide.
The PeCP creates a care plan that includes “social determinants of health, an adherence assessment, interventions made by the pharmacy team, clinical goals, and referrals to other members of the healthcare team,” said Amina Abubakar, PharmD, CEO of Rx Clinic Pharmacy. Abubakar was an early adopter of PeCP and a practicing pharmacist in Charlotte, NC, according to an article by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC).
