MONROE - A new Monroe Clinic initiative that expands the pharmacist's role in chronic disease management is garnering recognition throughout the region. The new initiative recently earned second place at Concordia Medication Management Accelerator's pitch competition in Milwaukee, where Monroe Clinic competed against 12 other pharmacist-led teams - including teams from Aurora Healthcare and Walgreens. Formed as part of Monroe Clinic's Collaborative Care Model, the program begins as physicians identify patients that can benefit from follow-up medication consultations with Monroe Clinic pharmacists.
