Outcomes Announces Top Pharmacies - 03.22.2012

SUPERVALU has been named the Top Large Pharmacy Chain in the Outcomes Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Network. Eighty-nine percent of the chain's pharmacies participated in the MTM program in 2011, with a Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR) acceptance rate of seventy-six percent. An early leader in MTM services, SUPERVALU has participated in the Outcomes MTM program since 2006. The chain is the first in the nation to fully integrate its dispensing software system with the Outcomes MTM platform, allowing for significant workflow efficiencies for its pharmacists.

"Pharmacy engagement in the delivery of MTM services reached its all-time high in 2011. There were several strong contenders for top large pharmacy chain and we are pleased to award the honor to SUPERVALU," said Dan Rodriguez, Outcomes Director of Provider Services.

New for 2011, Outcomes selected a Top Regional Pharmacy Chain, Aurora Pharmacies, based in Wisconsin. Aurora's dedication to MTM services and the positive impact their pharmacists have had on patient safety and health care costs is evident in their decision to implement the Outcomes MTM program for the Aurora employee population in 2011.
