Accredited Continuing Education Webinar
Statewide Collaboration across Practice Settings to Improve Value-Based Care Outcomes
December 9, 2021   
1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET 

Rural America has unique health care needs and provides a center for innovation and opportunity. Large to mid-size Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs) that serve much of rural America have seen the greatest need for partnering with organizations within the community to better serve their members. 

This PQA Quality Forum Webinar features Sharrel Pinto, the 2021 Community Pharmacy Innovation in Quality individual award winner presented by PQA and the Community Pharmacy Foundation. Dr. Pinto is the Department Head of Allied and Population Health and the Community Practice Innovation center (CPIC) Director at South Dakota State University.

Dr. Pinto will provide an overview of the challenges facing healthcare organizations that serve rural communities and identify statewide collaborative solutions that effectively build bridges and break down silos to patient care. Her presentation will shed light on identifying gaps in care within communities and methods for partnering with stakeholders including tribal partners, federally qualified health centers, and community pharmacies. Finally, Dr. Pinto will discuss designing specific strategies to working with IDNs and community partners to further improve access to care and positively impact outcomes.
At the completion of this activity, the Pharmacist will be able to:
  • Describe methods to identify care gaps within their communities.
  • Identify different stakeholders impacting patient care and their specific interests.
  • Discuss strategies for working with integrated delivery networks and community partners.
