Medication therapy management (MTM) is a distinct service or group of services provided by pharmacists, to ensure the best therapeutic outcomes for patients. MTM includes five core elements: medication therapy review, a personal medication record, a medication-related action plan, intervention or referral, and documentation and follow-up. 

“Medication Therapy Management (MTM) is a covered benefit for many of your Medicare patients, some of your commercially insured patients, and is available for others on a cash paying basis.

Providers benefit from Medication Therapy Management when pharmacists help identify non adherence  and provide a comprehensive medication record to help keep them informed about patient's medication use.

 

Pharmacists collaborating with other health care providers can help ensure the most optimal medication outcomes for patients by identifying preventative health care opportunities, like immunization needs, and empowering patients to take an active role in optimizing medication and healthcare self-management for improved healthcare outcomes.
