Millennials: How to Recruit & Retain Them - KEYNOTE ADDRESS

Audience: Keynote Address - GENERAL SESSION (ALL)
Speaker: Lou Ann Brubaker, President – Brubaker Consulting
This course is accredited and provides one (1.5) live C.E. Credit for Pharmacists

Ask many people about Millennials and they’ll use words like ‘slacker’, ‘entitled’, or ‘self-involved’. But is that really the case? We don't think so!

In this fast-paced 90-minute keynote participants will be asked to examine the myths and the truths about Millennials, as well as what strategies provide greater insight into recruiting and retaining what is now the largest workforce age cohort in America. Beyond how you need to attract and keep them in your organization, the program will also explore what Millennials worry about and how they see their role in the world. You'll learn what Millennials expect in work culture, about their goals, and what skills they possess that could be leveraged to the benefit of pharmacy.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe what constitutes a Millennial (is it just age or mindset?).
  • Differentiate between myths (& truths) about Millennials.
  • Describe how employers need to recruit & retain Millennials in the workplace.
  • Recognize what communication (and supervisor) expectations Millennials have at work.
  • Develop opportunities at work for Millennials that play to their strengths.
"Amazon Effect" & Prescribing Cascades Podcast Event

Audience: GENERAL SESSION (ALL)
Speakers: Chad Worz, B.S., Pharm.D, President of Medication Managers LLC & Darshan Kulkarni, Pharm.D, JD Synchrongenix, A Certara Company

Part 1 - The Next-Gen Senior Care Pharmacist

Explore the following topics:

  • Understand the Opioid Epidemic impact on senior care and appropriate use of Antipsychotic Intervention
  • Collaboratives with primary care, psychiatrists, and specialists
  • Identify strategies you can use in your organization to improve pharmacist and interdisciplinary team engagement in healthcare improvement initiatives
  • Describe typical “prescribing cascades” and implications for medication review
  • Describe how innovative pharmacy practice models can improve prescribing and care outcomes in the elderly

A serious occurrence in LTC-Pharmacy/ Senior Care pharmacy is Prescription cascade.

Prescription cascade refers to the process whereby the side effects of drugs are misdiagnosed as symptoms of another problem resulting in further prescriptions and further side effects and unanticipated drug interactions. This may lead to further misdiagnoses and further symptoms.

Part 2  - The Amazon Effect on the Modern Pharmacy World

Shares of Walgreens, CVS, Walmart and Express Scripts have dropped 14%, 1%, risen 15% and dropped 5% over the last three months on news that Amazon may be entering the pharmacy world. Dr. Darshan Kulkarni, a leading Food and Drug and principal attorney at the Kulkarni Law Firm, serves on the board of the American Pharmacy Purchasing Alliance (APPA) which has over 1,700 members and represents over 1,100 independent retail and LTC-Pharmacy owners. Pharmacy owners could be significantly impacted by Amazon’s entry into the pharmacy industry. The impact of Amazon on these small business owners could change lives, impact livelihood and potentially decimate cornerstones of several communities – the small independent pharmacy.

Amazon “has not had the cleanest supply chain so far,” said Kulkarni and a dirty supply chain “gets very quickly eviscerated when you’re dealing with regulated products like drugs and devices.”  Kicking products off Amazon’s website could affect its product margins, because customers may no longer see it as a one-stop shop, said Kulkarni, who noted he holds Amazon stock.  But if Amazon expands into medical devices, pharmaceutical drugs or medical supplies, “they’re going to go from serving customers, which they’re very good at, to serving agencies… and that may end up impacting how they do business,” he said. “When you’re serving two masters, one is probably going to end up being unhappy.”

Growth Track

Good Bye Volume: Hello Value; Transitioning from Fee-for-Service – GENERAL SESSION

Survive and Thrive in a Value-Based Payment Environment

Audience: GENERAL SESSION (ALL)

Instructor: Irving Stackpole, RRT, Med, President – Stackpole & Associates, Inc.

This course is accredited and provides one (1.5) live C.E. Credits for Pharmacists

ACPE UAN: 0280-9999-18-003-L04-P Knowledge-Based

There is an inarguable shift occurring within healthcare from “volume” based reimbursement (fee-for-service) to “value” based payment. This shift is seen in various models for payment including, Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and Bundled Payment for Care Initiatives (BPCI).

By the end of 2018, 50% of Medicare payments will be based on value, rather than fee for service (the dominant current model for payment). This change is intended to both slow the increase in healthcare spending in the US, and to improve the value of services provided.

The transition from "volume" based payments (fee-for-service) to "value" based payments is momentous. For decades, more services provided to patients or “consumers”, translated to higher provider payments. But now – what do we do?

Insurance companies and other intermediaries are in the habit of dictating levels of payment, utilization & length of stay, and in the current environment, providers’ experience is no different. Will provider managers be simply told what to do, or can we develop a pro-active model?

This program looks at why CMS is focused on post-acute care (PAC), and programs which effectively manage the relationships between and among discharging hospitals, post-acute care providers and intermediaries attempting to manage post-acute care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define “value” in healthcare and post-acute care.
  • Describe current reasons for the high degree of variance in post-acute care.
  • Identify resources that managers can and should access to establish programs to improve value.
  • List partners and models to develop and communicate an effective program.
  • Describe a 7-step process to build cross-continuum collaborations.

This class will be a question and answer format with a panel of DocuTrack and PrimeCare specialists. Questions will be taken from the audience for an answer from the appropriate panel member. Answers and suggestions may also come from other pharmacies as we all discuss the question presented.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the best way to implement features your pharmacy may not be using.
  • Learn from colleagues that may have overcome the same challenge.
