Stimulating comprehensive medication reviews among Medicare Part D beneficiaries.
The authors assessed the impact of a patient engagement intervention utilizing the Medication User Self-Evaluation (MUSE) tool on the completion percentage of comprehensive medication reviews (CMRs) among Medicare Part D beneficiaries. They found that the estimated odds of having a CMR among those who received the MUSE intervention were 2 times that of their counterparts. They concluded that Part D plans could use the MUSE to engage targeted beneficiaries in using pharmacist-provided MTM services.
