AMCP Strategic Priorities
As a professional association, AMCP leads the way to help patients get the medications they need at a cost they can afford – and every year, we seek to continue to strengthen our efforts as represented by our Strategic Priorities.
In 2022, AMCP sharpened its focus on evaluating and defining how managed care pharmacy can affect positive change within each of three specific areas. AMCP’s strategic priorities are intentionally designed to provide flexibility given the ever-changing health care landscape and can be adapted and refocused as dictated by the needs of our members and the patients they serve.
Optimize Value and Access
“Improve formulary decision-making and tools to help patients obtain the medications and other therapies they need.”
AMCP encourages the exchange of ideas among stakeholders to identify solutions that optimize patients' health outcomes and address barriers to care access. Our focus includes value, access, affordability, technologies, and quality. To achieve this, we endeavor to improve formulary decision-making tools, evaluate digital therapeutics, support biosimilar adoption, and incorporate the patient voice into formulary decision-making.
Address Health Disparities in Medication Use and Access
“Address barriers to access the effective use of medications and other therapies.”
AMCP supports opportunities to leverage managed care pharmacy to address disparities in medication access, use, and outcomes. We will create awareness, identify opportunities to mitigate disparities in medication use from a managed care perspective, seek partnerships, and expand research opportunities to support managed care professionals regarding disparities in medication use.
Enhance Member Value
“Grow our membership and make AMCP essential to those involved in managed care pharmacy.”
Managed care pharmacy has a small footprint in the health care industry but influences the lives of 300 million Americans. By growing membership and utilizing the expertise of its members and corporate partners, AMCP will ensure that managed care pharmacy is a leader in national discussions on efforts to optimize value and access and address health disparities. We will continue building a strong, vibrant organization that is always #AMCPMember1st.
To improve patient health by ensuring access to high-quality, cost-effective medications and other therapies.
