SPRINGFIELD, Va. — Executives from retail, manufacturing, regulation and others are among the four new appointees to the Pharmacy Quality Alliance's board of directors for next year, the group said Monday.
The PQA said that effective Feb. 1, 2014, it would appoint to its board Health Mart Systems president Steve Courtman, Johnson & Johnson Health Care Systems senior director for health care quality David Domann, Millennium Pharmacy Systems SVP and chief compliance officer Jeffrey Newell and Food and Drug Administration director of professional affairs and stakeholder engagement John Whyte.
"I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with these four individuals who have a demonstrated commitment to PQA's mission of developing meaningful measures of appropriate medication use and patient safety that can drive overall patient outcomes and enhance the patient experience," PQA executive director Laura Cranston said. "Their combined expertise and unique backgrounds will provide the leadership and engagement necessary to advance the appropriate uptake and implantation of medication therapy-based performance measures in new and evolving models of care."
