Medication Therapy Management Resources

Master the Medication Therapy Management (MTM) workflow with aligned, interrelated drug information resources

Wolters Kluwer Clinical Drug Information provides a collection of offerings to help pharmacies, PBMs and payers efficiently manage Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services. The MTM Toolkit is composed of integrated drug databases and drug reference offerings from Clinical Drug Information applications Medi-Span, Facts & Comparisons, and Lexicomp to assist your organization or business in the performance of various MTM activities.

What is MTM?

Introduced in 2000, MTM fosters collaboration between pharmacists and patients who take multiple medications and/or have multiple chronic conditions. Through monitoring and counseling, healthcare professionals work with patients to achieve safer and more effective therapeutic outcomes. It is also a cost-effective approach to medication-related services: According to a University of Minnesota case study*, the reduction in total annual health expenditures related to MTM services exceeded the cost of providing those services by more than 12 to 1!
