MPhA member Daniel Rehrauer, PharmD, and his team at HealthPartners received a Pinnacle Award from the American Pharmacists Association. Watch a video describing the impressive outcomes of HealthPartners’ Medication Therapy Management Program.
The Minnesota-based HealthPartners MTM Program is an integrated health organization that provides care delivery and health plans functions through a network of community and clinic-based pharmacists, according to its video. The largest consumer-governed nonprofit health care organization in the country, with nearly 900,000 members across all 50 states now, HealthPartners began in 2006 and is unique in that it integrates insurance and care delivery. All providers are able to share data and work together as a team to achieve patient care goals.
“Everything we do is related to the triple aim,” Rehrauer said in his remarks. He spoke of “proving the value a pharmacist can provide when integrated with a patient’s care,” and said HealthPartners has the data to show its work positively affects patient experience, outcomes, and cost of care.
On September 19, Rehrauer was the featured guest speaker at the Pinnacle Awards Innovations in Pharmacy Practice Lecture held at APhA headquarters. His lecture, From Medicare to Coverage for All: The Evolution of an MTM Program Over a Decade, showcased the Health Partners MTM program.
