How We Accomplish Our Mission

The Ambulatory Care Collaborative accomplishes their mission by connecting with the patients and communities we serve to understand specific barriers to optimal health. Pharmacists that comprise the Ambulatory Care Collaborative are equipped to help manage not only individual patient care but also broader population health initiatives. Members collaborate with other providers to ensure the continuum or care, utilize resources such as pharmacy residents and students to foster a learning environment, and broaden the reach of the division to a wider population. The collaborative tracks interventions, monitors progress of patients and initiatives, and reports successes and learning opportunities with other providers to improve the health of the patients we serve.
