For more information about CPA services and related services provided by pharmacists, see the following resources. In addition to the overview below, this resource contains links to the CPA Toolkit, a CPA summary webinar, additional resources for CSAs, and support for pharmacist services. Alaskan CPAs may include multiple pharmacists and multiple practitioners (for example. B a pharmacist who hires a CPA with a group of staff physicians, several pharmacists who take a CPA with a physician, or multiple pharmacists who will receive a CPA with multiple pharmacists), although a «primary prescribing practitioner» must be designated. The CPA must indicate the disease states, medications (or classes of medications) on which pharmacists can make decisions, as well as a procedure/minutes in place for those decisions. Decisions must be reviewed at least every three months at the same time as the entities covered and the protocols are only valid for a maximum period of two years.  Alaskan CPAs allows pharmacists to track «drug treatment» in accordance with AAFC 12.52.995, including conducting a comprehensive patient analysis, measuring vital parameters, and ordering/evaluating laboratory tests covered by the CPA.   Since 2010, Medicare Part B has not provided reimbursement for pharmacists.  The Pharmacy and Medically Underserved Areas Enhancement Act (H.R. 592/p. 109) was introduced in January 2017 in the House of Representatives and The Senate.  This would allow pharmacists to obtain reimbursement through Medicare Part B for the provision of health services in medically underserved communities defined by the state.  These must be services for which pharmacists are licensed in their respective countries and services for which physicians would have been compensated under Medicare.  Other pharmacists told me that they were considering adding clinical services, but had not yet started. We need to do this to take care of our patients and stay relevant in the future! For example, when they hear that Amazon is buying PillPack, some pharmacists worry about the changes. It can be intimidating. But are these big national companies compensating for medicines? Do you work with local doctors? How do they think about medication changes in the middle of the month? There is still a great need for independent community pharmacists to go out and do better. These clinical parts are the key to what differentiates us from any mail order transaction and gives better outcomes to our patients. While ASAs are not a prerequisite for collaborative care, they can be used to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of collaborative care. If harnessed to their full potential, ASAs have the opportunity to improve access to care, expand services available to patients, increase the efficiency and coordination of care, and use pharmacists` medication skills to complement the skills and knowledge of other members of the health team. Survival after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has improved and the number of allogeneic HSKOM performed annually in the United States is expected to reach 10,000 by 2015. The National Marrow Donor Program has set up the system capacity initiative to put in place mechanisms to supply the growing number of HSCT receptors.
