RALEIGH, N.C. Thousands of patient interventions by Kerr Drug pharmacists have earned the chain recognition from a leading pharmaceutical health provider as the nation’s top provider of pharmacy-based medication therapy management.
It’s the third year in a row Kerr has won the honor, bestowed by Outcomes Pharmaceutical Health Care, a national MTM provider network. In bestowing the award, Outcomes noted that Kerr pharmacists served nearly 10,000 MTM-eligible patients in 2008, saving more than $2 million in estimated costs.
“Over the past year, Kerr Drug has remained a front-runner in the provision of MTM services and has clearly demonstrated the value pharmacists deliver to the health care system,” said Outcomes VP Brand Newland.
Outcomes also named the Kerr store in Moncks Corner, S.C., as the top individual pharmacy for 2008 in its eighth region, an operating area that represents Georgia and South Carolina.
