JCPP Approves New MTM Services Definition

The Joint Commission of Pharmacy Practitioners (JCPP) Board of Governors has approved a revised, and expanded, definition of Medication Therapy Management Services.  The new definition focuses on the key elements of medication management:

Medication Management Services are a spectrum of patient-centered, pharmacist-provided, collaborative services that focus on medication appropriateness, effectiveness, safety, and adherence with the goal of improving health outcomes.

JCPP’s press release on the updated definition specifies that it is the “pharmacy profession’s definition,” so it lists pharmacists as the providers of MMS, but that other members of the healthcare team may participate in MMS as well.
