MEDICATION THERAPY MANAGEMENT
Helping Patients be Active in Their Healthcare while Preventing Costly Medication Issues.
According to Public Health Reports, 75% of Americans have trouble taking their medicine as directed.
This lack of adherence causes approximately 125,000 deaths in the United States with an estimated total cost of 100-300 billion dollars each year. Research shows that Medication Therapy Management (MTM) improves medication adherence resulting in fewer deaths and immense cost savings.
We have long recognized the significance and need to bring MTM to the forefront of a patient’s care path. MTM is a medical service provided by pharmacists whose aim is to optimize medication therapy and therapeutic outcomes for patients to improve the overall quality of life.
