MTM-DSM

Ohio’s MTM Story

Ohio S Mtm StoryOPA’s Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Committee asked pharmacists who provide MTM services to submit examples of the impact of these services in their professional practice. We were pleased to receive responses from more than 100 different sites across the state.  Each MTM “story” tells of an individual encounter that improved the health of a patient. These stories have been published in a booklet that showcases, by Ohio Senate District, the effect of several of these interactions with pharmacists. 

The Ohio’s MTM Story booklet will be shared with legislators, third party administrators, media and others to educate them about the positive impact pharmacists have on patient lives and the healthcare system.

The electronic version of the booklet is now available at the following link: Ohio's MTM Story


 

Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services can effectively promote appropriate medication therapy, improve patient therapeutic outcomes, and control overall health care costs. Pharmacists and other health professionals collaborate to provide Disease State Management (DSM)/MTM, which targets the prevention of complications and treatment of chronic conditions.

OPA's Medication Therapy Management Committee maintains a Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Registry for patients and health providers. The MTM Registry identifies the location and services provided by MTM pharmacists in Ohio. It is self-reported and kept current by the staff of the Ohio Pharmacists Association (OPA). OPA recognizes the benefits of MTM services to improve the patient’s quality of life and encourages use of this resource. However, OPA does not endorse these providers and their services nor has OPA reviewed the listing of services submitted.  To download a printable form of the Registry, click on the following links.
