Mark Pilkington is the new executive director of Pharmacy Profiles, LLC

WASHINGTON, DC — Today the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) is pleased to announce Mark Pilkington, BPharm, MS, as the executive director of Pharmacy Profiles, LLC. Pharmacy Profiles is wholly owned by APhA and was launched in 2017 as the first single-source repository of the nation’s pharmacist providers. Pharmacy Profiles provides a seamless process for credentialing of pharmacists and other pharmacy personnel.

“Mark brings a wealth of experience in both managed care and start-up corporate executive leadership to the table,” said Michael D. Hogue, PharmD, FAPhA, FNAP, FFIP, APhA’s CEO and executive vice president. “We are fortunate to have someone with his insights and connections within the payor and corporate marketplace to ensure the groundwork is in place for routine payment of pharmacist care services through traditional medical models of billing.”

“Pharmacist providers have demonstrated tremendous value to the health care system and now private health plans, state Medicaid programs, and others are seeking to quickly add pharmacists to their credentialed networks,” said Pilkington. “It is exciting to be a part of accelerating the onboarding of pharmacists into networks through the only fully customizable, state-specific solution to give employers, payers, and networks the intelligence needed to pay pharmacists for the care they provide.”

Pilkington comes to Pharmacy Profiles following two decades of managed care leadership with AmerisourceBergen (now Cencora) and Cardinal Health; and through the launch of ClaritasPSM, a new generation PBM started by pharmacists focused on patient care. Before working in managed care, Pilkington was the Illinois Pharmacists Association Executive Director. He is a graduate of the University of Illinois, Chicago, with both his bachelor of science in Pharmacy and master of science in Pharmacy Administration.
