GTMRx in Health Affairs: Comprehensive Medication Management: A Missing Ingredient In Value-Based Payment Models

TYSONS CORNER, VA USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- SEPTEMBER 9, 2022: Underappreciated CMM is the missing ingredient to value-based models Comprehensive medication management (CMM) is the missing ingredient in value-based models, but despite evidence supporting its effectiveness and value, it remains underappreciated and underutilized, a group of GTMRx leaders write in Health Affairs Forefront. They highlight the evidence for CMM, including how it supports all five elements of the Quintuple Aim-including the newest aim, health equity. Their call to action: Align on the standardized definition of CMM "to promote well-defined CMM practice standards for consistent implementation, and to promote properly resourced CMM services in value-based contracting."
