The article presents a study which evaluates the efficiency of the ambulatory primary care management program in patients with dyslipidemia. The study is undertaken through assigning clusters which consist of at least two physicians and four pharmacists to provide collaborative or usual care. The result of the study shows that collaborative care, which involves physicians and pharmacists, has no significant clinical impact in the control of lipid in patients with dyslipidemia.
