Your pharmacy is an excellent partner for accountable care organizations. ACOs are formed by doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers to improve health outcomes and lower overall medical expenses for a targeted patient population. Reimbursements are tied to patient outcomes.

When your pharmacy can improve and track adherence – a key driver of readmission prevention and overall health – you are a valuable partner to help ACOs prevent unnecessary medical care.
