This project focused on supporting the integration of clinical pharmacists into primary care practices. An important achievement included working with the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services to develop administrative rules for Medicaid reimbursements for clinical pharmacists. Open Aid Alliance is also continuing to work on establishing standard outcome measures across that state that will be used to demonstrate the value of clinical pharmacy services. Ongoing planning and educational session will also take place to assist pharmacists who are interested in establishing clinical pharmacy services in a primary care practice.
