Best Practices and Innovative Solutions Subgroup
Areas of Further Work:
- Develop evidence-based, medication optimization and CMM use cases, which describe patient-centered, team-based, CMM services; highlight the value-added role of CMM in optimizing medication use and improving care of patients.
- Develop a marketing strategy to disseminate these evidence-based use cases broadly to a variety of key stakeholders, including patients and care givers, payers, employers, and healthcare providers. Develop a design framework for best practices (e.g., precision medicine) and new care delivery models (e.g., telehealth or other virtual models) that incorporates CMM services provided by pharmacists as members of interprofessional teams.
- Disseminate a CMM implementation tool for clinical pharmacists to promote consistency and fidelity of CMM implementation into practice.
- Offer role delineation guidance to physicians and other members of the health care team to shape and inform integration of CMM into practice to ensure a consistent and standardized approach to the delivery of CMM.
- Offer tailored guidance to patients and care givers and employers (with their input and through their lens) regarding what they can expect from CMM delivery and integration into practice and the complementary and synergistic roles of all who care for the patient.
- Identify partners and a dissemination plan (practice leaders, professional organizations, consultants, and payers) to increase awareness, build demand for, and ensure adoption and use of successful strategies and standardized implementation processes for ensuring medication optimization.
- Define goals, responsibilities, and accountabilities of health system and care team leaders in the implementation, evaluation and expansion of CMM services.

Evidence-Based Resources Subgroup
Areas of Further Work:
- Develop a library of evidence-based resources to be used by a variety of stakeholders which allows team members & stakeholders to understand the value of CMM on the quadruple aim (improved patient experience, improved patient outcomes, reduce cost and improved clinician experience). These resources should be housed in the CMM implementation tool designed by the best practices subgroup and disseminated through that mechanism as well.
- Resource 1: Evidence for the clinician or practice either implementing CMM into practice or re-designing/strengthening their current CMM practice
- Resource 2: Foundational evidence needed for stakeholders (payors/health care leaders) to understand the value of CMM
- Based on evaluation, determine future needs/gaps for CMM research as well as needed tools based on evaluated library of evidence for each of the above aims and the role of GTMRx to close said gap.
- Evaluate the need for and feasibility of developing a summative review of currently available CMM literature focused on the quadruple aim of health care. If the need is present, establish a task force to author develop and write the review, working on behalf of the GTMRx Institute.
- Evaluate current evidence related to specific clinical metrics for medication optimization and team-based care that are centered around the quadruple aim and applicable to different stakeholder subgroups (e.g., patients and care givers, payers, health system leaders, providers and health care team members, patient advocacy and professional groups).
