Alameda Alliance Expands Face-to-Face MTM Offering in California - 04.11.2012

Outcomes Incorporated (Outcomes®) has been selected by Alameda Alliance for Health to administer Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services for a seniors and persons with disabilities (SPD) population in California. Outcomes has administered MTM services for Alameda Alliance's Medicare Part D plan since 2009.

"We have experienced meaningful results within our Medicare Part D population through face-to-face MTM services over the last three years," said Anna Yang, PharmD, Director, Pharmacy Services at Alameda Alliance. "With this new population, in order to successfully meet their medication needs and scale the program quickly, it made perfect sense to expand the existing network-based MTM program with Outcomes."

Alameda Alliance SPD members are eligible for MTM services from specially-trained Personal Pharmacists™ to help them achieve safe and effective results from their medications while controlling costs. Through the program, participating local pharmacists receive alerts and information concerning medication use patterns, as well as guidance on working with patients and doctors to close key therapy gaps.

Alameda is among over 40 US health plans that have adopted the Outcomes MTM unified platform which connects such plans with over 40,000 chain, independent, consultant and health-system pharmacy providers across the country.

All Alameda Alliance SPD members are eligible for a full menu of covered services, including an annual Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR). The CMR allows each member to meet one-on-one with a local pharmacist to review their complete medication profile to detect and prevent conflicts or duplications. Members are eligible for Targeted Medication Reviews throughout the plan year as well.

Pharmacists who are interested in participating with Alameda Alliance or any other Outcomes MTM program should call 877.237.0050 or visit www.outcomesmtm.com.
