Collaborative drug therapy management (CDTM) enables patients to receive optimal care by means of a team-based approach. Physicians and pharmacists can work together to ensure patients are meeting therapeutic goals. Currently, CDTM is allowed in hospitals and long-term care settings.
Indiana is one of only 6 states that limits CDTM to hospital-based sites. HB1111 would expand CDTM to all physician clinics under a physician-directed protocol. This would allow pharmacists to further assist physicians in managing chronic disease states, which allows physicians more time to focus on other patients. This provides patients with increased accessed to care. There is a public need for HB1111.
According to the Indiana State Department of Health, 31% of Hoosiers had hypertension in 2009, 40% had high cholesterol in 2009, and the prevalence of diabetes increased by 12% from 2005 to 2009. Show your support and impact health care in Indiana!
We, the undersigned, call on the members of the Indiana General Assembly to rise in support of expanding collaborative drug therapy management to all physician clinic settings .
