Medication Therapy Management (MTM)

What Is a Medication Check-Up?

A medication check-up is a service provided by pharmacists. This service is sometimes called medication therapy management or MTM. A medication check-up is more than answering questions when you pick up a prescription. During this service, your pharmacist will meet with you by appointment to review all of your medications, including:

  • Prescription medications
  • Over-the-counter medications
  • Herbal products
  • Dietary supplements.

The overall goals of MTM

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) advocates that healthcare should be safe, effective, patient centered, timely, and efficient in meeting patients’ needs.

MTM seeks to enhance patient care by improving collaboration among pharmacists, physicians, and other healthcare professionals; enhancing communication between patients and their healthcare team; and empowering patients to optimize medication use for improved healthcare outcomes.
