Eliminating Barriers To Care Using Technology [Video]

Interesting video that talks about the use of telepharmacy for Medication Therapy Management (MTM).

More about the project:

This project demonstrates how telehealth, including videoconferencing, can cost-effectively improve access to care for a high-medical-need population that is socially isolated, geographically dispersed, and experiences language and cultural barriers to care. In this project, specially trained pharmacists provided medication therapy management services to nearly 100 older Cambodian-Americans. Results: Pharmacists identified 604 potentially harmful medication-related problems (MRPs). During the 12-month project, 93% of MRPs were resolved, medication adherence behaviors improved 23%, and therapy outcome goals were achieved 24% more often. The projected ROI from avoided hospitalizations and ER visits was approximately $6 saved for every $1 spent on the project.
