Addressing the demand for clinical solutions to supervise overprescribing patients, Benzer Pharmacy announces that it will provide Medical Therapy Management (MTM) to its customers.

“Medication Therapy Management (MTM) is a patient-centric approach to bridge the gap between pharmacists and patients. By providing increased access to pharmacists, patients are able to take on a more active role in their wellness journey,” says Alpesh Patel, President of Benzer Pharmacy.
MTM services include pharmacotherapy consultation, progress check-ins, anticoagulation management, health and wellness programs, immunizations and medication therapy reviews, among others.
