Program Overview

The Tennessee Pharmacists Association (TPA) is actively seeking participation from Tennessee chain and independent community pharmacies in the ongoing Community Pharmacy Transformation (CPhT) pilot project. Newly added community pharmacy sites can immediately participate in the “continuation” phase of the pilot, which requires data collection one day each month. For those companies already participating, consider adding additional pharmacy sites as the continuation phase requires less data collection and offers project training completely online.

This specific pilot project is part of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores’ (NACDS’) Optimizing Care Program, which aims to assess a promising practice model that fosters collaboration across healthcare settings. The CPhT pilot project seeks to optimize patient care and health outcomes by evaluating the impact of Technician Product Verification (TPV) in enhancing the delivery of community pharmacist-provided care and services through Collaborative Pharmacy Practice Agreements (CPPA). The CPhT pilot program is approved by the Tennessee Board of Pharmacy under a state research waiver.

To participate, please complete this application by December 15th, 2018.
