Mercy Health Clinic patients are provided with both prescription and over-the-counter medications free of charge from our on-site pharmacy, leading to increased patient compliance.
Our pharmacy supplied over $250,000 in pharmaceuticals to patients in 2011 thanks to financial contributors to the Clinic, and in-kind support from the State Medbank program and the County Pharmedix program.
Through a partnership with the University of Maryland’s School of Pharmacy, our most acute diabetic patients and any patient on five or more medications participate in our Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program. Pharmacy professors, along with new pharmacists and final year pharmacy students, meet one-on-one with our patients and are active members of the patient care team along with our physicians. The MTM program at Mercy Health Clinic has received national recognition from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and is seen as a model for other clinics to replicate nationwide.
