Project Term: 12 months: 2018-2019
Grant Amount: $21,912
For this project, Mountain-Pacific will partner with a consultant to train five care management pharmacists on comprehensive medication management (CMM). CMM is an evidence-based approach to improve patient outcomes. It ensures practices individually assess patient medications to determine each medication is appropriate, effective, safe (considering comorbidities and other medications), and able to be taken by the patient as intended. Mountain-Pacific will partner with clinics and payers to define options for providing CMM services onsite, collaborating with community pharmacies, and remotely providing medication management to two primary care practices in the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) program. This project aims to improve medication-related therapy outcomes, decreases adverse drug events, and decreases utilization of health care services.
