medications of the same type; and
  • 40 percent decrease in the number of patients receiving an unusually high dosage of medication.

  • A separate study of Missouri Medicaid patients found a 43 percent decrease in hospital admissions for those whose physicians received an educational mailing versus a 1 percent decrease in those from a similar comparison group who did not yet receive a mailing.(6)

    For other state examples of patient care improvements and cost savings, visit www.lillyforbetterhealth.com. The program has run in 26 states, including Oklahoma, which began its BPM in 2004.

    "We call our BPM 'SoonerPSYCH' which stands for Prescription Solutions for Your Cognitive Health. Through the program, our partnership with Lilly and CNS has allowed us to target physicians with patient-specific information and education in the most efficient and effective manner. Physicians are able to know whether their patients are filling the prescriptions on time or not at all, and to see if other physicians are prescribing similar medications for the same patient. Having the information in hand provides an opportunity for the physician to educate the patient about the chronic nature of their condition and the importance of persistence, compliance and adherence to their prescribed medication regimen," said Nancy Nesser, J.D., Pharm. D. pharmacy director for the Oklahoma Health Care Authority's state SoonerCare program.

    Evidence suggests that 96 cents of every Medicare dollar and 83 cents of every Medicaid dollar are used to treat chronic diseases.(7) Disease management programs help patients with chronic diseases manage their condition and get the care they need. For more than seven years, Lilly has funded disease management programs in partnership with state Medicaid departments.
