As a patient of the UW Medicine Specialty Pharmacy, you are enrolled in our Patient Management Program (PMP). You do not have to pay for the services this program provides. If you do not want to use this program, you may call and tell us at any time.
The PMP helps make sure you get the best outcomes from your drug therapy. Our pharmacists will work with you directly. We will talk about your treatment plan, problems, concerns, or questions you may have about your specialty drugs. Our goal is to help you improve your overall health.
Potential Benefits of the PMP
Benefits of the PMP program may include help managing any side effects, improved overall health, more education and awareness about your disease and medicine, better compliance with taking your medicines, and help coordinating care with your provider when needed.
Potential Limits of the PMP
The limits of this program depend on you, the patient. You must be willing to follow the directions of your provider and pharmacist, to take your medicines as directed, and to talk with your pharmacist about the details of your disease, health history, and current healthcare practices.
