Get the Medications Right Institute
TYSONS CORNER, VA USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE -- MAY 19, 2023: Today, The Get the Medications Right™ (GTMRx) Institute, the catalyst for change to medication management, announced that Co-Founder, Katherine H. Capps will be speaking at the May 31- June 2, 2023 America's Physician Groups (APG) Annual Spring Conference. Capps' June 1st panel, comprised of leaders in healthcare and pharmacy practice, will address the importance of integrating clinical pharmacists into person-centered, team-based primary care in order to drive value and ensure safe, effective, appropriate use of medications.
Comprehensive medication management (CMM) is the standard of care that ensures each patient's medications (whether they are prescription, nonprescription, alternative, traditional, vitamins, or nutritional supplements) are individually assessed to determine that each medication is appropriate for the patient, effective for the medical condition, safe given the comorbidities and other medications being taken, and able to be taken by the patient as intended.
The APG Annual Spring Conference — Going the Distance — will take place in San Diego, CA. The Conference affords attendees an unparalleled opportunity to hear from nationally recognized speakers and experts on the very latest developments and challenges in health care. Attended by IPA executives and healthcare providers on the frontlines of patient care, participants engage in the event to hear from experts about the latest tools and insights needed to thrive in multiple-payer arrangements.
In 2019 Capps co-founded the GTMRx Institute, a coalition of over 1,700 members from over 1000 organizations calling for medication management reform.
