University of Arizona College of Pharmacy Medical Management Center
The Medication Management Center was established at the UA College of Pharmacy in 2006. In 2013, the medication therapy management programs developed by college faculty and center staff were spun off with the help of a Tucson investor. The new entity, SinfoniaRx, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sinfonia HealthCare Corp., develops and manages a full suite of medication therapy management services.
Executives at the Medical Management Center (MMC) at University of Arizona knew that its innovative pharmacy program had outgrown its current platform. It needed an infrastructure that could scale, but without the administrative burden and costs of starting over.
