Navarro earns kudos for MTM services
November 20th, 2013
MIAMI – Navarro Discount Pharmacy has been recognized by OutcomesMTM for its commitment to medication therapy management and the health of its patients.
The South Florida drug chain said Wednesday that it was recognized by OutcomesMTM, a Des Moines, Iowa-based provider of MTM services, as the pharmacy representative for the Southeast region for October.
Navarro Discount Pharmacy's Targeted Intervention Program (TIP) success percentage was over twice as high as the average of other pharmacies within the region, the chain noted. Scoring is based on getting Navarro pharmacists involved in making a face-to-face difference for their patients in the most efficient way possible.
Navarro said its pharmacists are focused on medication issues such as nonadherence, high-risk medications and identification of cost-saving opportunities for patients.
"We are honored to receive this recognition, which highlights our continued commitment to patient health, education and the individualized attention we provide our patients on a daily basis," Albert Garcia, executive vice president of pharmacy at Navarro, said in a statement.
With 33 stores throughout the Miami area, Navarro is the largest Hispanic-owned drug chain in the United States.
