When It’s No Longer the Exception, but the Rule!

"We are so excited to win the first-ever Flip the Pharmacy Pharmacy Award! Our pharmacy staff has been working extremely hard to transform to a pharmacy that is truly focused on our patients and their health. This award recognizes that effort. Deb Page was instrumental in getting our program started even as she started her plans for retirement and did an excellent job in transitioning the lead role to Ashli Yoder. Ashli has taken the reigns and run with them. We are extremely blessed by God to be honored with this award," Dr. Wayne Myers

Change Packages & Best Practices

The Flip the Pharmacy Coordinating Center has created multiple, monthly change packages.
If you are participating in Flip the Pharmacy Cohort 1 or Cohort 2, then this is your Month 1 Change Package on Diabetes and Social Determinants of Health.

The first few months, the focus will be on diabetes. There will be references to social determinants of health (such as the “Comprehensive Medical Evaluation and Assessment of Comorbidities" Table on the last page of the change package), but it will not be the main focus until later in the progression.
