Succeeding in the Value-based Care Environment with Comprehensive Medication Management Services

Ready your Future Today with the A3 Collaborative

AIMM is partnering with Apexus, the HRSA-designated Prime Vendor for the 340B Drug Pricing Program, and ASHP (American Society of Health-System Pharmacists) to offer the national A3 Collaborative, a year-long learning experience to help health care providers succeed in the new era of value-based payment programs.

As a member of the A3 Collaborative, health care organizations participate in a 12-month transformational experience that will establish a new strategic capability. An implementation team will be formed by each organization to rapidly put in place a working medication management program, or to focus on accelerating the scale and spread of one already in place. Additionally, pharmacists may receive up to 40 Pharmacy Continuing Education credits, which can be earned throughout the 12-month learning cycle.

A3 Collaborative Participation Fee: 

Participation in this dynamic, leading edge collaborative network is offered at a cost of $9,000 for the year, plus the cost of team member travel to in-person events. A3 Collaborative partner, Apexus, offers scholarship funding to organizations to offset a portion of the costs of participating in the learning collaborative. All organizations are invited to apply for a $6,000 scholarship to cover part of the participation fees. Organizations will be responsible for the remaining $3,000 fee. Scholarship and participation fees cover participation for one 12-month learning cycle

Continuing Education (CE) Offering: 

CE opportunities will be available throughout the collaborative year and will align with the current work your organization will be focused on as part of your collaborative experience. Pharmacists choosing to complete the CE portions will be required to complete separate online documentation to earn credits—up to 40. The CE offering is optional and choosing not to participate will not impact your collaborative learning experience. Programmatic details about this CE practice-based activity, exclusive to A3 Collaborative participants only, will be forthcoming. There is no additional fee, aside from the A3 Collaborative participation fee, for the CE offerings for up to two pharmacists in your organization.
