ACCP Report - May 2019

ACCP Serves as Founding Board Member of GTMRx Institute


GTMRx Institute

The Get the Medications Right(GTMRx) Institute, launched last month, is dedicated to identifying methods that ensure the effective and appropriate use of medications. To further advance the promotion and implementation of comprehensive medication management (CMM), ACCP joins a group of founding board members that includes distinguished primary care physicians and health care leaders; J&J Health Care Services; Medecision, a subsidiary of Health Care Service Corporation; and Quest Diagnostics.
