The MTM Challenge:
The opportunities for pharmacist-provided MTM services are growing. Forty-nine percent of MTM providers surveyed reported a moderate or significant increase in MTM activity from 2010 to 2012. A major barrier to providing MTM services is limited pharmacist time. Fifty-eight percent of patients 65 years and older are taking five or more medications. Most pharmacists don’t have the time to prepare a Comprehensive Medication Review for such complex cases.
Increased MTM Activity and Revenue
The ScopiaRx report provides the pharmacist with personalized medication alerts, greatly reducing the time to prepare for a medication counseling session.
Improve Patient Loyalty
- The value of medication review services is increasingly being recognized by patients and patient advocates.
- Two primary concerns are the potential dangers of polypharmacy (use of 5 or more medications) and adverse drug events.
- The ScopiaRx report allows the pharmacist to address these concerns with confidence.
- Face to Face interactions associated with MTM activities builds loyalty and reinforces the value of speaking directly with a pharmacist.
