Medication Therapy Management
Medication therapy management (MTM) is medical care provided by pharmacists whose goal is to optimize drug therapy and improve outcomes for patients. MTM includes a comprehensive medication review, creating a medication treatment plan, monitoring efficacy and safety of medications, enhancing adherence through education, and communicating to prescribers in order to maintain comprehensive patient care.
Anyone who uses prescription medications, non-prescription medications, herbals, or other dietary supplements may potentially benefit from medication therapy management services.
People who may benefit the most include those who use several medications, those who have several health conditions, those who have questions or problems with their medications, those who are taking medications that require close monitoring, those who have been hospitalized, and those who obtain their medications from more than one pharmacy.
Medication therapy management is a unique niche for the pharmacy profession, allowing pharmacists to apply their extensive medication knowledge as medication experts with the intent of improving patient outcomes. Pharmacists provide this service to help patients get the best benefits from their medications by actively managing drug therapy and by identifying, preventing and resolving medication-related problems.
