NAMCP Medical Directors Institute’s
“Value Based Care Council”

Executive Director: Michael A. Ford, RPh

Council’s Mission:

NAMCP understands the changing landscape with regard to the delivery of healthcare is moving from traditional fee for service to more of a focus on value based care and all of the omplexities therein.  In that pharmaceuticals are the mainstay of the treatment plan or therapy for most medical conditions, the association made the decision to move forward with an initiative to work with Medical Directors and other stakeholders to improve medical outcomes not only through the more effective utilization of pharmaceuticals, but medical devices and diagnostics alike.

“We believe the work you’re doing is important and
are excited to continue collaborating.”

Product Value Proposition Customer Engagement Short Form (Click Here)

In response to a agreed upon unmet need in the marketplace, the Value Based Care Council developed a short form in order to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency with which product value propositions can be shared between industry and the medical leadership of various payers throughout the country. This same short form provides a concise and consistent manner with which product value propositions can be shared while also providing the ability to align expectations prior to actually conducting conversations or having a meeting regarding a product or service.
This form is to be utilized by the customer as an unsolicited request to industry. It contains guidance for industry as it pertains to the customer, as well as the form allows for a response to be a maximum of 3 pages.
