TYSONS CORNER, Va. (PRWEB) October 26, 2022
Today, The Get the Medications Right™ (GTMRx) Institute, the catalyst for change to medication management that brings together critical stakeholders across health care, is announcing that Executive Director and Co-Founder, Katherine H. Capps will be speaking at this year’s America’s Physician Groups Colloquium (APG). The panel, comprised of leaders in healthcare and pharmacy practice, will address the importance of including pharmacists in the team-based care approach.
APG, which represents more than 335 physician groups with approximately 170,000 physicians providing care to nearly 90 million patients, is hosting this year’s Colloquium in Washington, D.C., and aims to provide hands-on knowledge and best practices from physician groups with successful track records in value-based care delivery, along with the big-picture view from policymakers bringing change to the healthcare system. Capps, who leads the GTMRx coalition of over 1,700 members calling for medication management reform, is part of the panel discussion on how pharmacists, as medication specialists, can work in collaborative practice with physicians to ensure the safe, effective, and appropriate use of medications. The goal of this approach is to decrease physician burnout, increase patient satisfaction, and save lives.
WHAT: APG Colloquium 2022 Breakout Session, “How Pharmacists Elevate Team-Based Care”
- Attendees will hear about the novel ways some physician organizations are incorporating pharmacists on their teams to optimize medication use, improve patient care, reduce the total cost of care, and impact patient and provider satisfaction. Decreasing physician workload, increasing patient satisfaction, more effectively managing chronic conditions, decreasing hospitalizations, and reducing waste are driving value in these team-based care models.
WHO: Panelists include:
- Katherine Herring Capps, Co-Founder & Executive Director, GTMRx Institute
- Jordan Haag, PharmD, Director, Ambulatory Pharmacy Practice, Mayo Clinic
- Bahar Davidoff, MBA, PharmD, Vice President, Pharmacy, Heritage Provider Network

WHEN: Tuesday, November 1 from 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm ET
WHERE: Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC
- 1000 H St NW
- Washington, DC 20001
The GTMRx Institute advocates for the broad adoption of CMM, a more rational process of care in which physicians and clinical pharmacists work together to ensure that each medication is appropriate for the patient; very much in line with the aims and goals of APG Colloquium 2022.
