Resolving Medication Therapy Problems: A Major Step Toward Measuring MTM Outcomes

Pharmacists every day recommend interventions to resolve medication therapy problems (MTP) during medication therapy management (MTM) encounters. A new quality measure, PQA’s first monitoring measure, supports standardized documentation and evaluation of interventions to resolve patients’ MTPs in health plans’ MTM programs. This measure is an essential step toward evaluating the clinical impact of MTM services to ensure patients receive quality care.

Lisa Hines, PharmD, PQA Vice President for Performance Measurement and Operations, will moderate this Quality Forum Webinar to discuss the monitoring measure, its development and implementation opportunities. She will be joined by a panel of experts, including Samm Anderegg of DocStation, Amanda Brummel of Fairview Pharmacy Services, Jessica Frank of OutcomesMTM, and Ann Wild of SinfoníaRx.

Participants in the webinar will learn about:

  • The quality measurement gap addressed by PQA’s Medication Therapy Problem Resolution measure,
  • The PQA MTP Category Framework,
  • The measure calculation using clinical scenarios, and
  • The measure’s intended use and opportunities for implementation in health plan MTM programs.
