Long D. TrinhHealthcare system is dynamic and continues to evolve through innovation, education and research to address challenges and opportunities, including but not limited to: levering data analytics to drive decision making, focus on total consumer health, management of population health, transitions to value-based care, market disruptions due to digital healthcare, increasing pharmaceutical costs, demand for operational efficiency, opioid crisis, and cybersecurity.

Providence Health & Services continues to innovate, and has been a national leader in addressing these challenges and opportunities in order to improve health outcome of the population, improved patient experience, reduce the per capita cost of care, while being mindful of caregiver well-being.

In the value-based care structure, Providence takes accountability for patient care and its outcomes. For this structure to be successful, each clinical service must take accountability for their part of the care team. Pharmacy service within Providence aligns with this mission. There are pharmacy services within all aspects of patient care, including but not limited to acute care, ambulatory care, long term care, home care, to managed care. This structure creates an accountable pharmacy service which is rich for pharmacy training.

In addition to the structure of our heath-system and pharmacy service, our diversity is a strength. Residents training in the PGY1 & 2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership with Masters residency program will have an opportunity to learn from clinical and administrative leaders who have managed pharmacy practice from diverse settings across the country and the world. Our pharmacy leaders have managed diverse practice settings: large medical centers, pediatric hospitals, Veterans Administration, critical access hospitals, and small to medium sized health-systems.
