The Alamance Medication Assistance Program (AlaMAP) is a program of Alamance Regional Medical Center. AlaMAP provides medication access, medication education, and medication management to persons who have limited financial resources and no prescription insurance coverage.
Since 2001, AlaMAP has served more than 1,500 patients and acquired more than $6.7 million worth of free and reduced cost medications.
AlaMAP works with pharmaceutical manufacturers’ patient assistance programs to obtain medication. Clinical pharmacists at AlaMAP perform regular medication therapy management for patients. The goal is to ensure the patient uses the simplest, most cost-effective, and most appropriate medication regimen possible based on current medical evidence. As a result of this program, hospitalization and Emergency Department usage has decreased for AlaMAP patients.
