Medication Management of Type II Diabetes:
Bringing Best Practice to Daily Practice
Presented by Albert Noyes, PharmD, CDE, BCADM
Pharmacy Services Director, Mosaic Medical
Treatment recommendations for medication management of type 2 diabetes have shifted significantly toward newer and costlier medication classes in recent years. These changes are being driven largely by cardiovascular outcomes trials, and subsequent national guideline focus on outcomes prevention over strict glycemic targets. This often places primary care practitioners at odds with insurance plan formularies and preferred drug lists. This presentation covers key strengths and weaknesses of drug classes for diabetes, reconciles guideline positions against insurance plan step therapy and prior authorization criteria in our region, and supports a patient-specific, tailored approach to drug therapy selection.
Currently the Pharmacy Director for Mosaic Medical, Albert brings diverse practice experience as a clinical pharmacist, retail pharmacy management, inpatient hospital pharmacy management, and pharmacy administrator. Albert obtained dual board-certification in diabetes education and advanced diabetes management as a clinical pharmacist with the Utah Navajo Health System, where he served for 4 years as lead clinical pharmacist until moving to Central Oregon to join Mosaic Medical in 2015. He maintains a professional passion for ambulatory care, chronic disease management, and pharmacy leadership. He lives in Prineville with his wife and five children. When not at work he enjoys farming with his wife, fishing with his kids, and reading.
