What is MPTCQ?
Michigan Pharmacists Transforming Care and Quality (MPTCQ) is a collaborative initiative designed to improve patient understanding, compliance and management of medication plans through the integration of clinical pharmacists into direct patient care. Evidence has been established that an integrated care model allows pharmacists to help improve patient care through pharmacist-physician collaboration.
Due to the complexity of medication regimens and potential for adverse events, having clinical pharmacists with expertise in medication management as part of the integrated care team is critical. With clinical pharmacists reviewing all medications (prescription, OTC, vitamins and supplements) to ensure efficacy, safety and cost-effective therapy as a standard of care, patients in need of better disease control, ongoing medication management and adherence counseling will be identified more efficiently.
