AACP partnered with eight other national pharmacy organizations to launch the Pharmacy e-Health Information Technology Collaborative. The Collaborative will focus on the pharmacy profession’s technology needs to ensure that they are addressed and integrated into the framework of the U.S. Health Information Technology (HIT) infrastructure. Its members are committed to creating a comprehensive and unified approach, ensuring optimal integration of pharmacy’s requirements and contributions into the electronic health record (EHR). Two AACP members, Kimberly A. Galt from Creighton University and Marie A. Smith from the University of Connecticut, have been asked to serve as volunteer advisors to the Collaborative leadership based on their knowledge and impact on health information systems development.
