Because of this unified approach, it is simple and efficient for local pharmacists and their support staff to participate with OutcomesMTM.
What is Medication Therapy Management (MTM)?
Medication Therapy Management, or MTM, describes a broad range of healthcare services provided by pharmacists. These services are growing in demand as the pharmacist becomes more visible as a medication expert and more integrated into the patient care team.
MTM is a broad term that can really mean a lot of things. In our programs, pharmacists are:
- Helping patients overcome barriers to adherence
- Addressing gaps in therapy
- Educating on medications and disease states
- Reducing use of unnecessary or potentially harmful therapy
- Assessing for adverse effects
- Providing health screenings and tests
- Advising on preventative measures, such as well-child appointments, immunizations and appropriate prenatal care
- and more!
OutcomesMTM® connects pharmacists like you with targeted opportunities to provide these services for eligible patients and get paid for your expertise.
