Title: Medication-Related Services Documentation in the Pharmacist eCare Plan 

Abstract: As the industry moves toward value based and alternative payment models, electronic clinical documentation of pharmacist services are needed.  Emerging electronic forms using HL7 electronic care plan standards and standard terminology using value sets of SNOMED CT codes are becoming the industry-recognized standards.  The Pharmacy HIT Collaborative as the stewards of SNOMED CT value sets published in the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) Value Set Authority Center (VSAC), will discuss how pharmacist are using SNOMED CT codes in the Pharmacist eCare Plan HL7/NCPDP standard to capture the clinical services needed for chronic care management.

 

 

Primary Focus:

Effective Medication Use
To assure the meaningful use of standardized electronic health records (EHR) that supports safe, efficient, and effective medication use, continuity of care, and provide access to the patient-care services of pharmacists with other members of the interdisciplinary patient care team.

Pharmacist's Role in HIT
To assure the pharmacist’s role of providing patient-care services are integrated into the National HIT interoperable framework.



The Collaborative’s Guiding Principles

  • Identify (through the consensus work of expert panelists) the minimum data set and functional electronic health record (EHR) requirements for the delivery, documentation, and billing of pharmacist-provided medication management services. Such requirements include access to key medical information such as laboratory data, and bidirectional communication flow among all practitioners;
  • Structure and support implementation of a Pharmacy Practitioner HIT roadmap (Roadmap). The Roadmap is a document that directs and establishes benchmarks. These benchmarks will describe the development, implementation and application of technology in an efficient and effective manner for pharmacists to affect improved medication use;
  • Build cooperative relationships within pharmacy and among pharmacy and other stakeholders to communicate and advocate for the Pharmacy Practitioner minimum data set and Roadmap leading to a certified EHR as defined in the Federal Register [1].
  • Ensure pharmacy representation on key HIT-related committees and workgroups.

Enhance

  • Medication use and patient safety: through the meaningful use of standardized EHR
  • Recognition of pharmacists as health care providers

Ensure

  • A unified voice of pharmacy representation on key HIT-related endeavors to influence the recognition of pharmacist services
  • Integration of pharmacists as meaningful users of EHRs through certification and adoption of the pharmacist EHR (PP-EHR) module
  • Pharmacists have the ability and opportunity to document patient-care services within EHR
