Delta Pharmacy Patient Care Management

In July of 2008, the Delta Pharmacy Patient Care Management Project was implemented to evaluate the impact of pharmacists on clinical, economic, and humanistic outcomes through provision of Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services and disease-specific education in underserved targeted areas of the Mississippi Delta. Specialized MTM efforts focused on the targeted gap disparities of asthma and diabetes, while generalized MTM centered on overall appropriate medication usage. The project’s aim is to work within community pharmacies to reach people in the community and help them identify how they can better treat their chronic diseases and use their medication.
