Medication Therapy Management
Nearly two-thirds of Americans do not take their medications properly, and this lack of adherence can cause critical health issues, especially for people with chronic health problems like hypertension and diabetes.
Lake Regional Pharmacy's Medication Therapy Managment (MTM) program takes a personal approach to helping patients manage their medications. By setting aside time to communicate with our patients in-depth and in-person, we can empower them to take control of their health issues and reap optimal results from their prescribed treatment program.
MTM services include conducting a 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, along with documenting and communicating MTM services to prescribers in order to maintain comprehensive patient care. Eligible patients receive services at no cost.
Medication Therapy Managment includes a one-on-one meeting with a pharmacist to help with the following.
- Make sure you are using your medication correctly
- Reduce medication-related problems
- Find new medications that can improve your health
- Help you make positive lifestyle changes
- Learn more about your condition
- Find less expensive medications
Lake Regional pharmacists will conduct MTM for anyone based upon their chronic medical conditions.
Medicare identifies patients based upon the following criteria:
- Have at least one of these chronic conditions - diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, asthma or chronic pain.
- Take 10 or more prescriptions
- Spend at least $4,000 per year on prescription medications.
