Tim Cummins leads the Clinical Pharmacy Services team in supporting a diverse client population, including state Medicaid agencies, health plans and employer groups. He oversees two clinical call centers and provides clinical services for several state drug utilization review boards and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Formulary Drug Commission. Cummins' in-depth knowledge of the pharmacy industry has resulted in developing initiatives designed to control two critical drivers of pharmaceutical costs: specialty pharmacy drugs and behavioral health drugs. His vision extends to the concept of population health, and his team continues to provide clients with innovative programs for disease state management and prescriber education.
Before joining Commonwealth Medicine, Cummins held senior-level management positions at several leading pharmacy services and health care management companies, including
PharMerica, NetCare Health Services, and OmniCare, Inc.
Cummins earned a Bachelor of Science degree in pharmacy from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and a master's degree in business administration from Anna Maria College. He is a regular presenter at meetings of the American Drug Utilization Review Society.
