South Dakota Health Link – Medication Therapy Management
Pharmacists use Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program services to do in-depth medication reviews, follow-up phone calls to assess and promote patient adherence to medications, and other clinical services as determined by the patient’s insurance plan. MTM services ensure patients are receiving optimal therapeutic outcomes for all medications they may be taking. MTM also helps health providers limit patient medication abuse and misuse through patient education to ensure patients are able to use the prescription properly for their specific condition.
With the shift towards value-based care, pharmacists are expanding their role as essential members of the health care team. Community pharmacy practice is also evolving from a principal focus on medication distribution to expanded clinically-oriented patient care services. The need for access to clinical information and to improve care collaboration with other providers is essential for a patient-centered approach, enhancing patient health and medication outcomes.

In today’s changing landscape, providers are searching for ways to improve value-based care metrics. An essential component is in the Health Information Exchange (HIE). They offer a wealth of near real-time, clinical data which is necessary to deliver better care coordination and quality reporting needed to meet reimbursement requirements and beyond. Discover the benefits of utilizing a data foundation to intelligently integrate clinical information across an entire care community.
Strengthen care collaboration across the continuumNow more than ever before, providers need a quick and secure method for sharing data with payers. The demand for real-time clinical insight to support care management and quality improvement efforts continues to grow, making it imperative that providers have an efficient and effective way to transform lab values, medication histories and other clinical information into discrete data elements that can be used to power population health efforts.
Place orders easily, receive results seamlessly. Add the orders service to Exchange to allow your physicians to quickly and easily place orders for hospital services including laboratory, radiology and even rehab.

In states such as Vermont and Connecticut, recent stories have highlighted the struggles that those regions have experienced in being able to sustain health information exchange (HIE) success. But in certain other pockets of the country, data exchange efforts are progressing much better. In Colorado, for one, the Denver-based Colorado Regional Health Information Organization (CORHIO) has been able to attain levels of HIE achievement that is mostly unparalleled throughout the U.S.
The Wyoming Frontier Information Exchange is being built as a centralized clinical data repository for participating providers with technology from HIE vendor Medicity.
As value-based care takes hold, healthcare organizations are looking to better manage populations of patients to ensure care is timely, effective and as inexpensive as possible.
Health Catalyst, a leader in next-generation data, analytics, and decision support, today announced completion of its acquisition of Medicity, one of the nation’s largest population health management companies with solutions for health information exchange (HIE), business intelligence, and provider and patient engagement.
