Alliances committed to quality healthcare.
We value collaboration with organizations that share our commitment to improve the quality of care that can be given to patients. The tools, resources, and initiatives that result from these alliances help:
- Healthcare providers make better treatment decisions
- Organized care systems that want to improve workforce engagement
- Patients who want to understand what they can do to take control of their health
Important issues in cardiovascular care
American Medical Group Association (AMGA)
We offer information on certain best practices that have been identified for achieving quality hypertension management and collaborate with the AMGA to bring to the healthcare community a series on effective hypertension management. Top leaders from multispecialty groups and organized systems of care share their experiences and protocols, such as:
- Appropriate process for measuring hypertension
- Risks and challenges
- Case studies
This best practice series helps providers enhance their management and control of hypertension in their patients.
The value of pharmaceuticals
National Pharmacuetical Council (NPC)
We are a proud member of the NPC-a health policy research organization that is dedicated to the advancement of good evidence and science, and the promotion of quality healthcare. The NPC focuses on:
- Research development
- Information dissemination
- The education and promotion of the critical issues of evidence
- The value of medicines for patients
In this constantly changing healthcare environment, it is critical that important issues, such as the generation and interpretation of Comparative Effectiveness Research, are examined. We support the NPC in its efforts to answer important questions related to evidence-based medicine, and the value of medicines for patients.
New delivery care models
Today, many medical groups are transitioning from a traditional delivery model based on fragmented, episodic care to a coordinated-care delivery model. We know this transformation requires considerable change to the infrastructure and culture of an organization. We understand that engaging employees in medical groups to play an important role in this transformation is critical. Does workforce engagement impact the success of your coordinated system of care?
Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. has undertaken an initiative to answer this question through our collaboration with BlessingWhite and the AMGA. The insights learned from this project are supporting medical groups as they strive to improve their workforce engagement.
American Pharmacists Association (APhA)
We collaborated with the APhA to bring the Operation Heart program to communities. The objective of the program is to empower cardiovascular disease patients and to educate them on the importance of regular cardiovascular care and monitoring.
Pharmacists are an important part of the healthcare delivery model because they have direct relationships with patients. Operation Heart offers student pharmacists, the next generation of patient caretakers, the opportunity to help patients better manage their medications, encourage healthy lifestyle choices, and provide education on cardiovascular disease and its associated risk factors.
