OutcomesMTM to share clinical solutions with RBC 2016 attendees

BY David Salazar

OutcomesMTM, one of the newest companies of Cardinal Health, will be on hand at Cardinal Health RBC 2016 to share information and answer questions from attendees about its solutions for pharmacists who want to incorporate clinical services into their pharmacies as a way to help patients lead healthy lives.  

OutcomesMTM, which joined Cardinal Health in 2015, will have a dedicated education area on the Cardinal Health RBC 2016 show floor that will host short presentations and in-depth Q&A sessions with attendees to highlight the promise that medication therapy management (MTM) holds for independent pharmacists.

“We know incorporating MTM  into daily workflow at a pharmacy can be a still be a challenge to some pharmacies,” Cynthia Kesteloot, vice president of operations at OutcomesMTM told Drug Store News. “To address that, we’ll share best practices we've gleaned from our network and help pharmacists understand how to make MTM work inside of what they already do.”

Kesteloot said that the tools offered by OutcomesMTM help pharmacies identify MTM-eligible patients, file claims and simplify the process of integrating MTM with pre-existing pharmacy workflow.

OutcomesMTM solutions include its Connect™ Platform, which offers resources for providing CMRs, as well as its Targeted Intervention Program® (TIP). TIPs identify such issues as nonadherence and gaps in care, and alerts pharmacists that the patient might benefit from a clinical offering. Additionally, TIPs integrate with a pared-down version of the Cardinal Health MedSync Advantage™ platform.

“We're really excited to offer medication synchronization as a payable service within our program," Kesteloot said. “A health plan can choose to offer the service via the pharmacy. Through a TIP, we alert pharmacists to patients who manage several medications and would probably benefit from a common fill date. While pharmacists go through the process of syncing medications, they're able to document their claim at the same time.”

OutcomesMTM will also provide Cardinal Health RBC 2016 attendees advice for making the most out of clinical appointments with patients.

“We'll talk about skills, such as how to get a patient to agree to a CMR. In addition, we’ll address how to make the medication review efficient and effective, so the patient comes out of it with a good experience, and the pharmacist is able to identify any drug therapy problems and resolve them before they become a bigger problem down the road,” Kesteloot said.  

MTM allows for pharmacies to improve patient health while compensating them for their time, an added benefit for pharmacists that OutcomesMTM will share at Cardinal Health RBC 2016.

“Retail pharmacists are very well positioned to deliver high quality, cost-effective MTM services,” Kesteloot said. “Pharmacists know their patients and they know medications. With MTM, they can put their clinical skills to use and get paid for it.”

BY David Salazar
NEW YORK — Fortune recently released its list of the 100 best workplaces for millennials, which takes into account some 88,000 millennials surveyed across more than 600 companies that have been certified as a Great Place to Work. And among the companies identified were Publix (No. 74), Wegman’s (No. 40) and Whole Foods (No. 90). 
 
“As company founder George Jenkins often said, when you take care of associates, they’ll take care of their customers,” Publix CEO and president Todd Jones said. “Our associates appreciate our culture of caring, and it makes them feel valued as individuals.”
 
At Drug Store News and Mack Elevation’s Future Leaders Summit, the Emerson Group’s VP marketing Matt Poli moderated a panel featuring up-and-coming young business leaders about what millennials look for in potential employers and what leadership looks like to the new generation of leaders.  
 
“There are many perceptions,” Poli said. “Our objective is to look through the lens of millennials.”
