MTM is like Population Health Management

I saw this quote of the day in Drug Benefit News, and it made me think about all the discussions I’ve been having around population health management and the need for a longitudinal patient record and integrated member experience.

Medication therapy management (MTM) at its core is viewing “the member in its entirety and not as individual activities…and looking at all of those things around medications for that patient. You can have the best programs in the world but if the patient is not engaged, they are a waste of time and energy, and that’s why an integrated activity like MTM has the opportunity to be so significantly effective.”

– Jan Berger, M.D., chief medical officer at Silverlink Communications, Inc.
