Higher Standards. Better Results.
The practice of drug therapy management has one goal: drive better results. In today’s value-based health care environment, case management, disease management, pharmacy, and other organizations employ a suite of clinical services to help patients get the optimal benefit from their medications as well as prevent costly adverse medication-related events.
Organizations who achieve URAC’s respected Drug Therapy Management Accreditation demonstrate to providers and payers they meet the highest standards as they incorporate sophisticated DTM practices into patient care programs. The collaborative accreditation process enables URAC experts to work closely with your team to assess a wide range of clinical and business activities, including:
- Formulating medication treatment plans
- Monitoring efficacy and safety of medication therapy
