Reduce medication-related health risks, engage your members in their healthcare and improve performance on HEDIS measures. Prompted by TIPs in our platform, our network of pharmacists works with patients and prescribers on the interventions you choose. Our extensive menu of MTM services address a number of key quality measures to ensure members are:
- Receiving appropriate assessments, screenings & care
- Effectively managing common disease states
- Prescribed appropriate therapies in alignment with current guidelines
Target members for the services that will benefit them. Comprehensive Medication Reviews (CMRs) can help ensure your most at-risk members are taking the right medications in the right way. Targeted medication reviews (TMRs) can support adherence to critical chronic medications, prompt transitions to cost-effective alternatives and address gaps in care.
After leaving the hospital, a member may struggle to make sense of a new or changed medication regimen, while also working to heal. Medication reconciliation, delivered by a community pharmacist, can ease that transition, ensuring the member has the right medications at home and understands how to take them. Reconciliation summaries help ensure the member, primary care physician and pharmacy are informed of the new regimen, with the goal of preventing readmissions for avoidable events.
Education is an important strategy to reduce adverse outcomes from opioid therapies. Community pharmacists are well positioned to help members understand the risks of opioid therapies and how to safely use these potentially high risk medications. Through our specially designed TIPs, OutcomesMTM provides pharmacists with specific, actionable interventions to address this sensitive topic with your members:
- Education on safe use and disposal for a short term, short acting opioid therapy
- Assessment for adverse events and adequate pain control from a long term opioid therapy
- Initiation of nalxone for members taking a long acting opioid or using an opioid in combination with a benzodiazepine
Managing refills for multiple medications can be challenging. Through a Needs Medication Synchronization TIP, OutcomesMTM alerts pharmacies to members who may benefit from aligning their chronic medications to a common fill date. By simplifying the refill process and encouraging a regular monthly conversation with the pharmacist, MedSync can help patients improve and maintain adherence.
OutcomesMTM® designs MTM services to meet CMS requirements, address quality measures, reduce healthcare costs and improve the outcomes of members’ medication therapies. We also work with health plans to design new targeted interventions to meet a specific need. Services are provided face-to-face or by phone, as best suits each member. The following services, when provided and documented appropriately, may be included in an OutcomesMTM program.
