Plans Step Up Use of Pharmacists in Direct Care, Data Analysis

The programs, set up by health plans ranging from Highmark to L.A. Care Health Plan, intervene with patients at risk for conditions ranging from diabetes to opioid addiction. They use pharmacists in direct patient counseling, for medication therapy management and for data analysis, the plans say. Medicaid members are a particular target.
