National MTM Advisory Board Advocacy Efforts - 04.12.2017
SNOMED CT Framework
For the Enhanced Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Model test, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will collect MTM encounter data and evaluate pilot programs within a common framework. The Board released a statement of support for the “Standardized Framework for Cross-Walking Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Services to SNOMED CT Codes,” released in October 2016.
The Board encourages the MTM industry to adopt the framework and value sets available for MTM services in order to standardize data collection for the Enhanced MTM Model. In addition, the Board encourages the industry to evaluate application of the framework within MTM programs beyond Enhanced MTM programs to further strengthen system linkages and improve care coordination within the healthcare system.
