Improving Patient Care is a program adopted by the Indian Health Service to enhance patient care and to improve outcomes by
reducing health disparity to the Native American patient populations. In 2007, this rural Indian Health hospital underwent a
massive renovation to implement IPC. This patient practice model involves a multi-disciplinary approach in which all health care
disciplines come to the patient to review and evaluate patients? disease state(s). Pharmacists are an integral and important member
of the IPC. Pharmacists involved in the IPC are able to devote more face to face time with patients and are able to provide them
with more detailed education on their medications. In addition, pharmacists are able to intervene on patient?s behalf because of
greater access to the providers with great efficiency. Improving Patient Care program has shown to increase pharmacy patient
satisfaction in a variety of areas.
