Medication Therapy Management

We are here to help. Our Avance Care clinical pharmacists team up with your primary care provider to make sure that you are getting the most from your treatment plan. Through medication therapy management service, we help you take charge of your medication regimen.
Medication-related problems and medication mismanagement are a massive public health problem in the United States. Studies show that patients correctly retain only 14% of what their doctor tells them at the point of care. As a result, 20-30% of prescriptions are never filled, 70% of patients do not renew their prescriptions after the first year, and up to 50% of patients prescribed a medication are non-adherent. According to the American Pharmacist Association, “There are an estimated 1.5 million preventable adverse events each year that result in $177 billion in injury and death.”
We believe integrating pharmacists into primary care can prevent avoidable healthcare costs by increasing patient adherence, optimizing prescription regimens, and preventing medication-related complications.
