In short, the goal of Medication Therapy Management (MTM) is to have patients taking the right medications at the right times, in order to get the best possible health outcomes.
MTM was designed to improve collaboration among pharmacists, physicians, and other healthcare professionals; enhance communication between patients and their healthcare team; and optimize medication use for improved patient outcomes.
It is recommended that a patient meet with their pharmacist to conduct a yearly review of all medications. Additional reviews will vary with individual patient needs. The pharmacist will look for any possible overlaps in therapy, recommend the best time of day to take specific medications, discuss any side effects, eliminate any waste or confusion, and work with your other healthcare professionals to come up with the best possible care plan for YOU!
