What is the CMM in Primary Care Study?
The overarching goal of the CMM in Primary Care study was to establish the necessary foundations to enable the replication and scale of CMM services in primary care. This included defining the patient care process of comprehensive medication management (CMM) as an intervention that could be operationalized consistently; identifying the core components of CMM integration (practice management supports) needed to effectively and efficiently deliver CMM in primary care, and developing a process for assessing and ensuring fidelity of CMM delivery. The study also sought to identify the impact of CMM on key performance metrics in primary care, explore the return on investment of CMM, and assess both patient and primary care provider experience with CMM.
Members of the CMM in Primary Care Research Team include individuals from the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy, and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP). Additional contributors to the project include The National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) and The Alliance for Integrated Medication Management (AIMM).
