Troy Trygstad

Troy Trygstad is Vice President of Pharmacy Programs for Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC), the organization providing medical homes for 1.4 million Medicaid recipients. Under his direction at CCNC, the Network Pharmacist program has grown to include more than 80 pharmacists involved in activities ranging from patient-level medication reconciliation to practice-level health information technology adoption to network-level management of pharmacy benefits.

In addition to serving on multiple advisory panels addressing medication non-adherence, he has co-developed novel adherence programs and technologies that use multiple types and sources of drug use data to predict, intervene and triage medication management interventions and coaching opportunities under a multi-state collaborative called The Pharmacy Home Project. As part of that work, Trygstad co-created the PHARMACeHOME™ platform which captures a community-level drug use narrative with drug therapy problem-finding utilities.

He also co-created Care TriageTM logistics engine which organizes interventions and interventionists based on predictive models, taking into account available resources within a given ecosystem. Both are currently utilized in more than 40 distinct licensures, settings and roles, across multiple geographies with more than 4,000 distinct users.

He is also the Project Director for a CMMI Round 2 Innovations award that tests new models of payment and pharmacy connectivity to primary care providers and the Medical Neighborhood. 

Trygstad received his Pharm.D. and M.B.A. degrees from Drake University and a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Outcomes and Policy from the University of North Carolina. He proudly practices in a community pharmacy setting on nights and weekends and serves as a board member for the American Pharmacists Association Foundation.
