How can BetterMyMeds help my patients?
Medication Therapy Management (MTM) provided by a BetterMyMeds pharmacist will prevent, identify, and resolve medication-related problems such as non-adherence, adverse effects, medication misuse, and drug interactions. Your patients will become more active participants in their own heath care by learning how to work with you to monitor their response to medications, what questions to ask about new medications, and why taking medications as directed leads to improved health outcomes. When your patients engage regularly with a pharmacist, they are likely to stay healthier and spend less overall on healthcare.
How can BetterMyMeds help my clinic practice?
Your practice is being held to ever-higher quality standards for the healthcare your practice provides. Because medications are a mainstay of treatment for a variety of diseases, many quality benchmarks are related to medication use. Medication management by a BetterMyMeds pharmacist will provide your patients with the support and education they need to achieve better health outcomes from their medication, which in turn will benefit your practice by improving the quality of care it provides. Improved health outcomes will ultimately result in increased value-based payments for the services you provide.
BetterMyMeds will also decrease the time prescribers need to spend dealing with medication-related problems. By developing protocols that delegate certain activities or decisions to a pharmacist, medication monitoring and adjustment can be performed without having to schedule frequent follow up visits with a prescriber. Diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure, among others, can be brought under control more quickly when a pharmacist is available to assist with medication and/or dose adjustment.
By working with a BetterMyMeds pharmacist, your clinic will optimize patient care by improving collaboration between pharmacists, physicians and other health care providers; enhancing communication between patients and their health care team; and empowering patients to participate in health care decisions to improve their health care outcomes.
