The OSU General Internal Medicine Clinics are a network of 7 NCQA tier 3-patient centered-medical homes and the primary outpatient sites for the nationally-recognized Ohio State University Internal Medicine Residency program. The network is part of the CMS Primary Care First program, an Alternative Payment Model focused on value-based care and primary care transformation. The pharmacy team at the site is directly involved in the leadership, development, and delivery of the value-based care initiatives.
Pharmacy residents at this site will interact with more than 100 medical residents, 60 attending physicians, and have access to more than 70,000 patients in an interdisciplinary clinic setting. The pharmacy resident has opportunities to work with physicians to design therapeutic plans for the management of chronic disease states such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes, anticoagulation, asthma, HIV PrEP, smoking cessation, chronic non-malignant pain depression/anxiety, along with a variety of acute care issues. Collaborative practice agreements (CPAs) are established for a variety of disease states.
Providers within the clinic refer patients to an interdisciplinary diabetes management clinic, where, an interdisciplinary team including physicians and pharmacists, provides individualized care, goal setting and disease education to patients with poorly controlled diabetes. Pharmacists follow up between clinic visits to titrate medications and assess patient progress toward goals. Additionally, pharmacists at the OSU General Internal Medicine clinics provide timely care for patients during transitions of care, complete comprehensive medication reviews, and participates in population health initiatives.
The pharmacy resident plays a vital role in providing answers to drug information questions and educating other health care providers on pertinent medication-related issues. The pharmacy resident also develops and delivers educational presentations to medical residents as part of an ambulatory curriculum.
