Residency Overview

CCP’s Residency Program offers experiences in:

  • Clinical program development: Clinical programs are developed by reviewing pharmacy claims and trend reports to identify the need for clinical initiatives that may improve healthcare outcomes and quality scores.
  • Drug utilization review: Drug utilization review involves analyzing pharmacy claims to identify inappropriate prescribing practices and to provide physician education.
  • Formulary and cost management: Formulary and cost management strategies include reviewing member, physician, and drug utilization reports to identify potential cost-saving strategies through formulary changes.
  • MTM: The MTM service provides a detailed assessment of the member’s medications to identify inappropriate dosing, therapy care gaps, adverse reactions, and social determinants of health.
