Medication Therapy Management (MTM) describes a broad range of health care services provided by pharmacists, the medication experts on the health care team. Pharmacists are in a unique position to help patients get the most from their medications. Pharmacists undergo years of training and experience in managing medication therapies and are the best qualified health care providers to help patients manage and effectively use medications. As defined in a consensus definition adopted by the pharmacy profession in 2004, Medication Therapy Management is a service or group of services that optimize medication related outcomes for individual patients. The purpose of MTM involves consulting patients on managing various medication dependent disease states intended to be provided face-to-face or via telehealth consultation in a private or semi-private setting including a patient’s home, pharmacy consultation area or clinical office setting.  Rx Management Consultants partners with health providers resulting in increased medication compliance and patient satisfaction. Simply put, MTM is the heart of what Rx Management Consultants is all about.

Who We Are


Rx Management Consultants was founded by Mitzi Bell PharmD, MBA, CPh, an independent MTM Consultant Pharmacist. Dr. Bell has broad experience in providing clinical and operational pharmacy services to her community. Dr. Bell is passionate about promoting Medication Therapy Management services and she is a strong advocate for pharmacists being recognized as an integral part of the healthcare team. Dr. Bell has worked in several pharmacy practice settings including retail, long term care facilities (SNF/ALF) and hospitals thorough Florida. Rx Management Consultants was created to provide a personalized face-to-face pharmacist consultation that improves medication adherence and therapeutic outcomes, reduces medication related healthcare expenses and to receive financial reimbursement for MTM services.  Rx Management Consultants is a platform that allows pharmacists to showcase their clinical expertise in evaluating complicated medication regimens, identifying medication-related problems, and making recommendations to patients, caregivers, and other health care professionals.

What We Do

Pharmacists improving patients’ lives through collaboration with the healthcare team

The Institute of Medicine advocates that healthcare should be safe, effective, patient centered, timely and efficient in meeting patient’s needs. The goal of Medication Therapy Management is to enhance patient care by improving collaboration between pharmacists, physicians and other health care providers, encourage communication between patients and their health care team and empower patients to optimize medication use for improved health care outcomes. Rx Management Consultants promotes patients to actively participate in the health care process to prevent medication related problems.

People who may benefit the most include those who use several medications, those who have multiple health conditions, individuals who have questions or concerns with their medications, patients taking medications that require close monitoring, hospitalized patients, and those who obtain their medications from more than one pharmacy. Across the nation, pharmacists are working with patients to optimize medication use, avoid, prevent or resolve medication related problems and helping them to live happier, healthier and more productive lives.

Why We Do It

Rx Management Consultants believe there are two fundamental factors that drive the need for MTM services, rising healthcare expenditures and medication related adverse events.

Increasing costs of healthcare, high levels of national debt and an aging population are putting a strain on the system as a whole and is making it difficult for healthcare providers to offer the best care for patients. Everyone from policy makers to physicians and patients are aware that steps need to be taken to reduce the growing cost of healthcare expenses while retaining and improving the quality of patients’ care. Medication-related problems and medication mismanagement are a massive public health problem in the United States. Experts estimate that 1.5 million preventable adverse events occur each year that result in $177 billion in injury and death. Every person that uses prescription medications, non-prescription medications, herbals, or other dietary supplements could potentially benefit from medication therapy management services.

Medication Therapy Management services play a vital role in maximizing therapeutic results and reducing financial burdens to the healthcare system. MTM includes medication therapy reviews, pharmacotherapy consults, disease state management, pharmacogenomics applications, immunizations, health and wellness programs and many other clinical services. Pharmacists provide MTM to help patients get the best benefits from their medications by actively managing drug therapy and by identifying, preventing and resolving medication-related problems. Pharmacists can work with patients to optimize medication use, avoid, prevent or resolve medication related problems and helping them to live happier, healthier and more productive lives.
