What is Medication Management Therapy?

Medication management therapy – or MTM – is a treatment system doctors and pharmacists use to ensure that patients receive optimal therapeutic outcomes for the prescription medications they may be taking. Medication Management Therapy is used to cover a broad range of professional activities, such as:

  • They perform patient assessments or a comprehensive review of prescriptions and their possible interaction or side effects.
  • We are formulating both short and long-term medication treatment plans.
  • I am monitoring the safety and efficacy of any prescription medication plans.
  • We are ensuring directional or instruction-based compliance through patient education.
  • Better documentation and communication between MTM service providers to maintain a high standard of care among medical professionals.

In short, medication management therapy is a cumulative effort between pharmacies (and often healthcare providers and other medical professionals) to ensure that drugs are being used as prescribed while limiting chances for abuse and that patients are educated and able to use the prescription properly for their ailment.

*Please note that all medication management services are referred out to other providers for their expertise.
