The accuracy of prescribing for patients has improved remarkably during the past decade. Much of this due to the requirement for e-prescribing and it’s integration with electronic health records. This has eliminated unrecognizable physician penmanship as a barrier to accidental errors.  The semi-automation of entering a prescription coupled with pill size and dosages minimizes accidental errors from poor memory on the part of physicians Many electronic health records also ask what other medications a patient is taking, listing cross-reactions and side effects of the medication.  Your physician can now send your eRx directly to your pharmacy of choice and by the time your stop at your drugstore it may be ready…

The GTMRx Institute is anchored in our belief statements. They�re at the center of everything we do.

If you agree, we invite you to join the movement to get the medications right. Together, we�re working to save lives, save money, and when possible, restore health by getting the medications right.

A personalized, patient-centered, systematic and coordinated approach to medication use will vastly improve outcomes and reduce overall health care costs.
We must align systems of care to integrate comprehensive medication management, engaging patients to ensure that they are willing and able to take those medications that are indicated, effective, and safe, to optimize their outcomes.
We need an immediate delivery system, payment, and policy transformation to streamline clinical trials and reduce costs of bringing drugs to market while enabling successful, broad-scale adoption of integrated, comprehensive medication management (CMM) services. The appropriate diagnosis and access to advanced diagnostics with companion/complementary and pharmacogenetics (PGx) testing is essential to target correct therapy.
Success requires team-based, patient-centered care models that recognize appropriately skilled clinical pharmacists as medication experts who work in collaborative practice with physicians and other providers.
