Pharmaceuticals are the most common medical intervention, and their potential for both help and harm is enormous. Ensuring that Americans get the most benefit from advances in pharmacology is a critical component of improving the national health care system.
Comprehensive Medication Management (CMM) is the standard of care that ensures each patient’s medications (whether they are prescription, nonprescription, alternative, traditional, vitamins, or nutritional supplements) are individually assessed to determine that each medication is appropriate for the patient, effective for the medical condition, safe given the comorbidities and other medications being taken, and able to be taken by the patient as intended.
The numbers are staggering, but the solution comes down to one simple question: Is this the right medication for this person? GTMRx will advocate for comprehensive medication management, practice transformation and policy and payment reform to solve the $528 billion problem of non-optimized medication use. We will work to empower physicians and medication experts as collaborative members of the care team, so together they can ensure that medications are appropriate, safe, effective and precise. That’s how we save lives, save money and, when possible, restore health.
The GTMRx Institute is anchored in our belief statements. They’re at the center of everything we do.

Avoidable illness and death resulting from non-optimized medication therapy cost $528.4 billion in 2016*—16% of the $3.2 trillion spent annually on health care in the U.S. The significant human toll associated with these same costs: 275,000 lives lost. The cost impact can be seen in this infographic.
