Medication Therapy Management

MTM

Nova Southeastern University’s Medication Therapy Management Call Center was established in June 2016 as part of their Accountable Care Organization Research Network, Service, and Education (ACORN SEED).  The center serves not only as a call center but also as a practice site for student pharmacists. Students gain insight and confidence by allowing them to perform comprehensive medication reviews via the telephone, speak to patients regarding adherence issues, communicate recommendations and interventions to physicians and participate in outpatient research. Dr. Prados oversees the center's activities and student involvement.

What is Medication Therapy Management?

  • Medication Therapy Management (MTM) is a program where pharmacists work closely with you and your doctors to solve any problems related to your medications and to help you get the best results from taking them. The MTM service is provided via phone to eligible patients free of charge.

How will the MTM team assist you?

The MTM pharmacist, working with your physician’s office, will help ensure that:

  • You are taking the right amount of each medication
  • Your medications are not interacting with each other
  • You are taking only the medications you need
  • Any vitamins, supplements and over-the-counter drugs you are taking are safe and effective
  • You are spending no more than you need for your medications

Who will benefit from the MTM services?

Patients who:

  • Use multiple medications
  • Have questions about their medications
  • Receive medications from multiple places
  • Take medications that require laboratory monitoring
  • Have multiple health conditions
  • Want to reduce medication costs
