Collaborative Healthcare Partners
More than 2/3rds of Kentucky's counties have been officially designated as health professional shortage areas. Central Kentucky has been identified as a region critically lacking in primary care providers.
At Hometown, we view these troubling statistics as our call to action. We want to make healthcare more equitable by breaking down the barriers that make quality treatment inaccessible in our rural Kentucky home.
This project, led by Dr. Robert Burns Romines with Hometown Healthcare, will deliver primary care access to the historically underserved members of our community. But primary care isn’t our only objective — our program also includes allocation of resources for social services, HHS, mental health services, and other entities that provide the necessary follow up that these complex disease states warrant.

Ambulatory Care Pharmacies serve to manage patients in collaboration with physicians and other prescribers in an outpatient care setting.
Ambulatory Care Pharmacists may have an expanded scope of practice which may be designated either by practice type (i.e., Veterans Affairs) or by pharmacy practice acts. Most states allow collaborative practice agreements between pharmacists and physicians, which enable pharmacists to adjust and discontinue medications, order and monitor laboratory studies, and perform limited physical assessment.
Ambulatory care pharmacy practice focuses on patient-centered care, comprehensive medication management, long-term patient relationships, coordination of care, patient advocacy, wellness and health promotion, triage and referral, successful transitions, and patient education.
Pharmacists who practice in ambulatory care provide direct treatment services for those with chronic illnesses, promote general health and wellness, lead patient education initiatives, and engage actively with the people they serve.
