How It Works
Clinical Care Group (CCG) gives qualified independent consultant pharmacists the chance to tap into your entrepreneurial drive, expand and improve care oﬀerings and build the career you’ve always wanted by enabling you to provide Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services to your existing long-term care patients. We partner directly with MTM service providers as well as our credentialing partner, the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists Virtual Pharmacy Network.
In order to participate, independent consultant pharmacists must currently work in a long-term care setting and not already be contracted to provide MTM services through another pharmacy. Consultant pharmacists interested in becoming members of CCG must be members in good standing of the ASCP Virtual Pharmacy Network. If you are not already a member of the Virtual Pharmacy Network before signing up in the CCG portal, you will be prompted to become a Virtual Pharmacy Network member before moving along in the process.

The opportunity to grow your revenue is tied to how many MTMs you would like to complete each month. That said, most consultant pharmacists can expect to take home about $100-$120 an hour for successfully completed MTMs (this is based on the industry average of completing 3 MTM services in an hour and based on an average of MTM claim amounts).
Once you have completed all necessary steps to become a full user of the CCG platform and completed OutcomesMTM training, you will have access to the OutcomesMTM patient dashboard where you can identify your MTM eligible patients after you have completed initial data entry.
The American Society of Consultant Pharmacists and Clinical Care Group (CCG) are collaborating to give you, the consultant pharmacist, the chance to tap into your entrepreneurial drive, expand and improve care offerings and build the career you’ve always wanted by connecting you to patients needing Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services.
The Virtual Pharmacy Network provides credentialing services to ensure independent consultant pharmacists are qualified to meet the standards of MTM service providers.
As an independent consultant pharmacist, you are more than a healthcare professional—you are also a business owner. CCG helps you unlock new revenue streams, expand your clinical service offerings and build the practice you’ve always wanted.
When you join, you are not only creating opportunity for business growth for yourself, you are also giving your patients access to services that will improve their quality of care. MTM services allow you to deepen your clinical relationships with patients and build treatment plans that will benefit them through all stages of care.
CCG is currently the only business services platform that gives independent consultant pharmacists access to MTM service providers through our partnerships. Independent consultant pharmacists cannot currently access MTM service provider platforms on an individual basis.
We’ve identified numerous areas where our business services and software would be beneficial, such as home health care. At this time, however, our initial focus is solely on long-term care though we will keep you informed as this evolves.
