SPRINGFIELD, Va. — The Pharmacy Quality Alliance on Friday announced several changes to the PQA staff team, effective July 7.

Additionally, PQA appointed its second executive fellow, Maria Scarlatos. 
 
"I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with a talented and committed group of professionals," said Laura Cranston, executive director of the PQA. "PQA's dedicated team often wears multiple hats and takes pride in their ability to be highly responsive to our members and nimble in our decision-making processes. We look forward to the continued contributions of Sam and Jackie, and to providing a high-quality fellowship experience for the organization's second fellow, Maria Scarlatos."
 
Green has been with PQA for more than five years and manages a very diverse set of responsibilities, including finance and operations, member relations, meetings and human resource functions, the Alliance stated. Green works closely with all new member organizations to ensure a full integration into the workgroup infrastructure within PQA at the earliest stages, helping members gain the most from their PQA membership, the association added.
 
Stolpe has worked for PQA for the previous two years. His new responsibilities include leading PQA's efforts in capturing the voice of the patient in PQA's measure development process through the newly launched PQA's Patient Advisory Panel. He also has taken the lead in another strategic initiative for PQA, the launch of PQA's Adult Immunization Task Force. Stolpe is responsible for directing PQA's research projects and strategic initiatives. His most recent work has been focused on the adherence impact of medication synchronization, and the use of motivational interviewing techniques by pharmacists at the point of dispensing. Stolpe's work on PQA educational initiatives includes oversight of the Academic Affairs Committee, the PQA Ambassador Program and the newly revised Educating Pharmacists in Quality CE training program designed for front-line pharmacists, managed care executives and future leaders within medication use quality. 
 
Stolpe is a frequent lecturer on medication use safety and effectiveness, and serves as an adjunct faculty member where he teaches health policy. Stolpe has represented PQA in several international efforts this past year, including presentations in Japan and Hungary. And he continues to practice pharmacy by working in a local community pharmacy. 
 
Scarlatos, who joined as PQA's second Executive Fellow, is a recent graduate of the School of Pharmacy at Northeastern University's Bouvé College of Health Sciences. She brings professional work experiences from Tufts Medical Center and MedVentive, where she collaborated with two pioneer ACOs: Beth Israel Deaconess Care Organization and Mount Auburn Cambridge Independent Practice Association. 
 
During her pharmacy practice experiences, Scarlatos also worked with organizations consulting for long-term care facilities and managed Medicaid in Massachusetts.
