The TMA Pharmacoeconomic Center (PEC) and the TMA Pharmacy Operations Center (POC) developed this program to aid healthcare providers and pharmacy personnel in meeting the requirements of OTSG/MEDCOM Policy Memo 13-032. The objective is to identify Army active duty personnel who meet the Polypharmacy criteria. The Poly-MART method populates data for service members enrolled to an Army facility for direct care. This Poly-MART functions without the need for a service member roster. The data is delivered as a menu-driven, Microsoft Access database with individual look-up features and predefined reports designed to serve the needs of healthcare provider.
The Pharmacy Data Transaction Service (PDTS) is the data source of this program. PDTS contains prescription data from all MTF's, the Mail Order Pharmacy and over 60,000 retail network pharmacies.
