Medication therapy management at TEDxUniversity [video]

Thanks to Megan Hartranft (@MeganPharmD) and John Poikonen (@poikonen) for tweeting this. It’s nothing earth shattering, but it sums up why pharmacists should be more involved. Tim Ulbrich does a really nice job.

Pharmacy schools should show this short video to all their pharmacy students before turning them loose on the world. I talked about some of this in my presentation at the HIMSS Southern California Annual Clinical Informatics Summit a couple of weeks ago.

There was a time when I thought that the best place to engage patients was in the hospital, but I’m starting to rethink that position. If you think about it, engaging patients in the hospital is a bit of a reactive approach. We need to engage patients before they’re hospitalized to get the most bang for our buck.
