ACCP Report - October 2019

Washington Report

Advocacy Highlights at the 2019 ACCP Annual Meeting

Written by John McGlew
Director of Government Affairs



Capitol

2019 has been an exciting year for ACCP’s Washington office. The office has added staff and continued to expand its legislative and regulatory efforts to advance the integration of comprehensive medication management (CMM) as part of the transition toward alternative payment models and the shift toward care delivery structures that measure and pay for quality and outcomes.

ACCP’s Washington, D.C.–based Government and Professional Affairs team will be on hand throughout the upcoming 2019 Annual Meeting in New York City; meeting attendees are encouraged to find them at ACCP Central!

  • Marcia Buck, Pharm.D., FCCP, FPPAG, BCPPS, Director, Clinical Practice Advancement (mbuck@accp.com).
  • John K. McGlew, Director, Government Affairs (jmcglew@accp.com).
  • Katherine Pham, Pharm.D., BCPPS, Director, Policy and Professional Affairs (kpham@accp.com).

In addition, the Government and Professional Affairs team will be joined by the 2019–2020 ACCP-ASHP-VCU Congressional Healthcare Policy Fellow, Kyle G. Robb, Pharm.D. Robb is currently serving the minority staff on the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) but has agreed to take a few days’ leave to attend the meeting in New York City.
