Medication Therapy Management


Medication Therapy Management, commonly referred to as “MTM”, describes a “broad range of health care services provided by pharmacists, the medication experts on the health care team.”

 

Medication-related problems and medication mismanagement are unfortunately very common in our healthcare system. Pharmacists provide MTM services in order to review a patient’s complete therapy and make sure that it is appropriate for best managing the patient’s specific health conditions and overall health.  By doing this, the goal of the pharmacist is to best ensure that the patient’s therapy is effective and that interactions between different medications and therapies are unlikely.

Patients often do not realize that certain non-prescription medications, supplements, herbs, or even certain foods may interact with their prescription medications to reduce effectiveness or even cause serious side effects.  If a patient is receiving medications from more than one pharmacy or being treated for different health conditions by different physicians, the chances of interactions may increase.

By speaking with a pharmacist at President about your complete treatment profile–including non-prescription medications and supplements–a patient can better ensure that their specific health conditions or concerns are being managed appropriately.
