What is MTM?
Medication Therapy Management (MTM), also known as Comprehensive Medication Management (CMM), is a personalized service provided to you by a qualified pharmacist. The purpose of MTM is to reduce and prevent medication-related problems, while providing health and cost benefits to you.
How does MTM work?
A specially trained pharmacist will work with you and your other health care providers to make sure all of your medications (including over-the-counter medications and supplements) are working well for you without troublesome side effects or drug interactions. Regular follow-up visits will ensure you continue to achieve your medication-related goals.
What are the benefits of MTM?
Medications are getting more complicated all the time. The MTM program allows you to become more educated about your medication so you can be more involved in medication therapy decisions. The program also helps to reduce the risk of adverse drug interactions.
