To develop practice advancement initiatives, we must be familiar with the disruptive forces of health care, how they will challenge pharmacy practice and what outcomes we will measure. Developing ideas and metrics for the next 11 years is daunting yet invigorating. I envision pharmacy practice different than it is today. Advances in technology and optimized use of current technology will enable us to provide services differently than in the past. It will also allow us to more easily identify patients who need our care. These aren't new concepts, but we need to identify the outcomes we will measure earlier in our endeavors than later. It is also important to share these with your colleagues at local, state and national meetings. This will allow us to learn from each other and continue to advance pharmacy practice in Michigan.
