CVS Caremark was honored for its Drug Therapy Management program, which was developed to improve the outcome of drug therapy by providing patients with access to specially trained clinical pharmacists for one-on-one medication counseling. Patients with complex pharmacy needs -- those on multiple medications who have prescriptions from a number of different health care providers -- are encouraged to participate in an individualized counseling session with a clinical pharmacist to review their pharmacy health needs and identify any potential issues with compliance, efficacy, dosing and interactions. Once enrolled in the program, a comprehensive electronic record is developed and kept up-to-date for the patient, along with an individualized care plan and regular follow-up appointments via phone with their assigned clinical pharmacist.
