Module: Medication Therapy Management (MTM)
Distinct service or group of services that optimize therapeutic outcomes for individual patients.
MTM is a distinct service, or group of services, that optimize therapeutic outcomes for individual patients. MTM services can include but are not limited to:
Developing a medication treatment plan
Identifying and resolving drug-related problems
Providing patient education and training
Within QS/1 you can create customized MTM programs by using the Tickler file for scheduling appointments and using the Outcomes window for documenting MTM.
The patient chart allows you to document MTM with subjective, objective, assessment and plan (SOAP) notes and track lab values and immunizations. In addition, Personal Medication Records (PMR) and Medication Action Plans (MAPs) are available.
The PMR is a comprehensive record of a patient’s medications and other dietary supplements. The MAP is a patient-centric document containing a list of actions for the patient to use in tracking progress for self-management.
