Leading Institute for Comprehensive Medication Management Shares Strategies for Improving Inefficiencies in Health Care and Reforming Medication Management
“The COVID-19 pandemic and the opioid crisis have both shined a light on the increasing need for disparate health care groups to align around the same mission — starting with how medications are prescribed, managed and used,” said Katherine H. Capps, co-founder and executive director of The GTMRx Institute. “The issues facing our health care system transcend medication management; however, and are really about an interprofessional team treating the whole patient for better care and outcomes. Our impressive group of members are focused on sharing perspective and ideas for how to address challenges and improve the system as a whole.”
