The patient-centric structure within the new platform will drive efficiencies at network pharmacies and closely align the goals of our health plan clients with local pharmacists in our program.
Des Moines, IA (PRWEB) August 05, 2013
OutcomesMTM™, the national leader in Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services, announced today the successful launch of its cutting-edge Connect™ Platform. The web-based system will serve as the hub for all documentation, billing, reporting and administrative functions for MTM programs administered by the company. More than 50 health plans have adopted the OutcomesMTM unified platform, which connects such plans with more than 70,000 chain, independent, consultant and health-system pharmacy providers across the United States.
The introduction of the Connect Platform will set into motion a vast array of optimized processes for streamlining and expediting MTM service delivery and administration.
“Part of our ongoing commitment to the Face-to-Face Difference in MTM is continually developing ways to help our network pharmacists deliver exceptional services in a more efficient manner,” said OutcomesMTM Vice President of Operations, Jessica Frank, PharmD. “Connect represents 14 years of feedback and refinement—the sum total of our expertise in delivering successful MTM programs since 1999. It is the most advanced system of its kind.”
Within OutcomesMTM programs, participating local pharmacists receive alerts and information concerning medication use patterns, as well as guidance on working with patients and doctors to close key therapy gaps. The Connect Platform serves as the key software behind these consultations.
Cynthia Kesteloot, OutcomesMTM’s Vice President of Technology, specifically referenced a revolutionary “patient-centric” approach as a key feature of Connect.
“The patient-centric structure within the new platform will drive efficiencies at network pharmacies and closely align the goals of our health plan clients with local pharmacists in our program,” said Kesteloot. “And, even though the platform embodies hundreds of improvements big and small, the framework and processes for MTM services will still be familiar to pharmacists who have previously participated in OutcomesMTM programs.”
