Date:6/23/2009

Vivacare has included medication rebate coupons and medication brochures as part of its "From Your Doctor" patient education service to fulfill the needs of physicians and patients, and improve medication adherence. 69% of patients surveyed stated that access to medication rebate coupons would help them to fill their medication at the pharmacy. 86% of physicians surveyed stated that making medication rebate coupons available to patients on their practice Website would benefit the practice.

Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) June 23, 2009 -- Physician and patient surveys completed by Vivacare Inc. show that medication rebate coupons and brochures delivered via physician Websites support the needs of physicians and patients and may improve medication adherence.

Vivacare provides medical practices with the From Your Doctor patient education service. Enrolled practices receive a variety of practice-branded, Web-based patient education tools, including a Patient Education Library and Patient eNewsletter function. The Patient Education Library is used by physicians to reinforce key principles regarding the diagnoses they make and treatments they recommend.

From January to March 2009, 255 online visitors to a dermatologist's Website completed an acne survey. Of these, 46% (152) reported actively taking an acne medication, and 58% of those (88) reported taking a medication that required a prescription.

When asked what would help them to get their acne medicine from the pharmacy and take it as prescribed, 69% reported that access to medication rebate coupons would be helpful. 41% suggested that learning tips on reducing side effects would be helpful.
