Medication Therapy Management for Employee Health Plan Sponsors
A value-based benefit that contributes to Total Organizational Healthsm

Fairview Pharmacy's Medication Therapy Management (MTM) helps people manage their chronic health conditions and get the most from their medicines. Our virtual and in-person service capabilities bring the proven benefits and cost savings of MTM to your organization and its employees, no matter where they are located. See our video.

We developed MTM in 1997 in partnership with the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy. Since then, we have cared for more than 20,000 patients and resolved over 100,000 medication-related problems, avoiding at least 46,000 costly health care events such as hospitalizations, clinic visits and emergency room visits. Organizations currently utilizing Fairview MTM include the City of Duluth; the State of Minnesota; Medica; and Fairview Health Services.

Financial and Clinical Outcomes
Patient-centered MTM services can bring 3 to 1 or better return on investment (ROI) while dramatically increasing the number of participants who are reaching their health goals. In a study conducted with BlueCross BlueShield of Minnesota, Fairview MTM showed a 12 to 1 ROI when comparing the overall health care costs of patients receiving MTM to matched patients who did not.

MTM in Brief
Fairview MTM is a preventive solution for people with chronic conditions who are using multiple medications. The MTM pharmacist works individually with each patient and their other health care providers to help them manage their medications better and achieve their therapy goals. The MTM pharmacist confirms the purpose for each medication the patient is taking, ensures the safest and most effective dosages and makes sure the patient is compliant.

MTM results in healthier patients and a reduced demand for health care resources. Employers benefit from significant savings on overall health care costs and improved productivity.
