Center for Medication Management (CMM)
The Center for Medication Management, located at Blanchard Valley Hospital, provides complete disease management to assist you with your health care. Here, each patient works one-on-one with a clinician to develop a program based on their needs. As part of the CMM, you will receive information about your condition, learn how medication affects recovery and have medication dosages monitored/adjusted in collaboration with your physician. After each visit to the CMM, your primary physician receives a summary report that includes current medication doses, progress notes and laboratory test values.
The program currently offers the following services:
- Blood draws for medication monitoring
- Monitoring and adjustment of warfarin (Coumadin©) dosages
- Cholesterol management
- Drug therapy management
- Pill box filling
- Medication compliance and refill reminders
- Monitoring/screening of adverse drug reactions, side effects and potential medication errors
It's easy to enroll in the program
If You Are an Inpatient:
Your primary care physician can write an order to enroll you in the program. The CMM pharmacist will handle the rest.
If You Have a Referral from your Primary Care Physician:
