CareSouth Carolina's Tammie Robinson, PharmD, named MTM Pharmacist of the Year

CareSouth Carolina's Tammie Robinson, PharmD, named MTM Pharmacist of the Year

June 23rd 2021

CareSouth Carolina’s Tammie Robinson was named the Medication Therapy Management of the Year Award recipient at the 19th Annual SC Chronic Disease Prevention Symposium.

Serving as the Clinical Pharmacist in CareSouth Carolina’s CSC Community Pharmacy in Hartsville, Robinson works with a diverse group of patients ranging in age, ethnicity and economic class.

Robinson, who has worked at CareSouth Carolina for more than eight years, was named the award recipient for her effort to go above and beyond to come away with innovative solutions to improve the management of medications and chronic diseases. Robinson works collaboratively with providers and health care workers to ensure the best possible care is provided.

Through the MTM program, she is able to take an in-depth look at patients’ prescriptions and help educate them on the importance of their medication.

“The program helps fill in the education gap,” Robinson said. “A lot of the patients have chronic conditions, like hypertension, high cholesterol, asthma, diabetes and high blood pressure. They are on what we call ‘maintenance medications.’ I am able to go in, look at their prescriptions and help them understand the importance of taking that prescription to help treat that condition.”

Robinson said she was honored and humbled to be named the award recipient.

“This validates the role of the pharmacist as more than just a prescription provider, but also as an educator,” Robinson said. “It’s important to help customers remain compliant and adhere to their prescriptions. I’m able to discuss with them and address barriers as to what is standing in their way.”

The purpose of the Annual Chronic Disease Prevention Symposium is to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and partnership in efforts to reduce the burden of chronic disease in South Carolina. This annual event brings together health professionals and community stakeholders not only to educate and inspire each other, but to also embrace unique and innovative approaches to chronic disease prevention and health disparity reduction.

The theme for the 2021 Symposium is “The Color of Health”. As a result of the Annual Chronic Disease Prevention Symposium, participants had the opportunity to:

  • Explore the intersection of race and health
  • Interpret the root causes of health disparities as they relate to chronic illness
  • Identify barriers and facilitators related to chronic disease management and prevention within the clinical and community setting
  • Recognize evidence-based and innovative strategies designed to improve patient care and outcomes
  • Identify tools and resources that support chronic disease prevention and management
  • Summarize innovative strategies that support improved patient outcomes
  • Assess the clinical implications of integrating technology into healthcare practice
