We all know that caring for a child with medical complexities is a big job. Many patients in our population require multiple medications to manage chronic conditions. And oftentimes families are getting prescriptions from a variety of providers who are on the child’s care team. PHS has a service available to our MN Medicaid patients that can improve the outcomes of medication therapy.
Medication Therapy Management is a comprehensive assessment of all medications that the patient is taking, and the schedule they are taking them on. We want to ensure the patient is getting the most out of their medication regimen, so this review includes prescriptions, non-prescription, and herbal medications. Our pharmacy team then groups all the information together, does a thorough review to look for drug interactions, and provides medication education on exactly what the medication is doing in the body.
The best part? You don’t need to leave your home! This service is all virtual. So long as you have an additional health care provider in your home and a computer with a camera or a smartphone with a camera, we will be able to conduct a virtual visit. Don’t have another health care provider in your home? No problem, we can schedule an in-office visit as well.
