The 140+ GTMRx Institute workgroup and taskforce leaders and participants have been hard at work over the past year creating an impressive set of tools for presenting the case around the value of optimized medication use through comprehensive medication management (CMM) in practice.
The GTMRx Institute recognizes that employers as health plan sponsors manage the health benefits for 49% of this country’s total population. We also know because they sign the check, they have much to gain from optimizing the medications involved in 80% of all medical treatments. Research published in March 2018 highlights an eye-popping $528 billion was spent in just one year on unnecessary medical resources needed to resolve problems attributed to medication therapy problems.
The time is right to create plan designs and benefit strategies designed to get the medications right.
We invite you to read more, share these documents and join us to ensure appropriate use of medications. You can read the press release announcing the release of the Employer Toolkit here. Don’t waste another day!
This toolkit was developed with guidance and support from the GTMRx Employer Toolkit Taskforce.
