Implementation of Individual Medication Management System (IMMS) as an essential part of the pharmaceutical care (PC)
is of great importance to patients in Poland. This service affords an opportunity for individualized, effective and safe patient?s
pharmacotherapy. The aim of the study was to assess the physicians?, pharmacists? and patients? opinion about implementation
of IMMS in Polish community pharmacies. Pharmacist-physician cooperation was also evaluated. A cross sectional study was
carried out from 2009 to 2014 by a pharmacist (author of the study). The survey covered 129 pharmacists, 103 physicians and
179 patients. The respondents were provided with an anonymous questionnaire with a brief information about IMMS. The
results confirmed that patients (47.20%) would be interested in IMMS service, also in physicians (72.82%) and pharmacists
(50.00%) opinion. According to 85.30% pharmacists and 74.76% of doctors especially with a specialization in cardiology,
family medicine, and without specialty, IMMS may contribute to the development of the PC (p<0.0001). 56.31% of physicians
confirmed their collaboration with at least 1 pharmacist and 64.80% of pharmacists declared no cooperation. Physicians?
(79.61%) and pharmacists? (68.80%) approved the possibility of the cooperation by using IMMS. This study provides first data
about implementation of IMMS in Poland. This innovatory service could be the chance both for patients and physicians to
increase the safety and effectiveness of pharmacotherapy and for pharmacists who are intended to highlight their role as a part
of health care system. The positive opinion provides the opportunity to implement IMMS in Polish community pharmacies.
