Abstract:  There are several articles published on clinical pharmacy services, but these studies are usually in academic medical centers. This study will be carried out in HCA, a for-profit health-care corporation. The Capital Division (17 hospitals) is embarking on a journey of further developing their clinical pharmacy programs. We are in the process of defining the clinical program that each facility decides to develop and determining appropriate metrics to measure the programs’ outcome. This program will give a high-level overview of the clinical programs developed in the facilities with a deep dive into the two programs that have the most success. (Metrics will vary, so success will be determined on the established goals of the facility.) The specific programs will go into the process of developing the program, education needed, multidisciplinary meetings and outcomes measured.

Learning Objectives:

     1.    Assess the current state of clinical pharmacy service in their facility.
     2.    Assess areas of greatest clinical impact for the clinical program within the facility.
     3.    Develop a clinical program and metrics to determine the outcome desired.
