NBI #4 - Procurement Strategies and Patient Steerage


  1. APhA supports medication procurement strategies that meet chain of custody standards for pharmaceutical products moving from one entity to another; ensuring the exchanges are accurate, timely, and follow best practices prior to administering the product to the patient; and preserve the economic viability of pharmacy practices.
  2. APhA opposes required procurement strategies (e.g., site of care steerage, brown bagging, and white bagging) that restrict the patient’s and providers’ ability to choose treatment options that may lead to or result in fragmented care between the patient, pharmacist and other healthcare providers.
  3. APhA calls for the creation of operational efficiencies that allow the patient’s choice of pharmacy and site of care; do not restrict or delay care; and ensure continuity of care through collaborative efforts between providers that leads to optimal patient health outcomes.
