Medication therapy management (MTM)
is medical care provided by pharmacists whose aim is to optimize drug therapy and improve therapeutic outcomes for patients. Medication therapy management includes a broad range of professional activities, including but not limited to performing patient assessment and/or a comprehensive medication review, formulating a medication treatment plan, monitoring efficacy and safety of medication therapy, enhancing medication adherence through patient empowerment and education, and documenting and communicating MTM services to prescribers in order to maintain comprehensive patient care.
Any patient who uses prescription and nonprescription medications, herbal products, or other dietary supplements could potentially benefit from the MTM core elements. As part of the effort to effectively address the urgent public health issue of medication-related morbidity and mortality, MTM services should be considered for any patient with actual or potential medication-related problems, regardless of the number of medications they use, their specific disease states, or their health plan coverage. Although the needs of individual patients may vary, the use of a consistent and recognizable framework for core MTM services, will enhance their efficient delivery and effective quality measurement.
