Argus Commission 

The Argus Commission will study how access to and use of “big data” will influence the future of academic pharmacy from the perspectives of curriculum/education, research, clinical practice, population health, community engagement and public policy. The framework of access, affordability and accountability will be included in their analysis.

  • Access: how will the effective use of data on applicants, current students, alumni, patients affect admissions, competency mastery, learning and practice decisions for our students, faculty and alumni
  • Affordability: can the effective use of data make programs more efficient for all stakeholders
  • Accountability: how can schools and colleges use data from varied sources for quality improvement and assurance

What role should AACP play in assisting members with “big data” in the context of current efforts to employ the principles of “knowledge management” to the work of the Association?
