What is Medication Therapy Management (MTM)?
Medication Therapy Management (MTM) is a service provided mainly by pharmacists. The MTM pharmacist reviews all medications prescribed by all prescribers providing care to the patient, and any over-the-counter and herbal products the patient may be taking to identify and address medication-related problems.
Problems may include medications not being used correctly, duplication of medications, unnecessary medications, and the need for medication(s) for an untreated or inappropriately managed condition.
MTM involves collaboration with the patient, physician, and other health care providers to develop and achieve optimal goals of medication therapy.
