Date:7/7/2011

st of treatment, according to previous CVS Caremark-sponsored research.
  • Making sure e-prescribing guidelines encourage the use of more cost-effective medications.
  • Developing education programs for physicians and patients around the effectiveness of generics to offset some long-held biases that generics are not as effective as brand medications.
  • Developing new incentive programs through pharmacy benefit and health care plans that promote the use of generics.

  • Today's Health Affairs study is a product of a three-year research collaboration between CVS Caremark, Harvard and Brigham and Women's Hospital that is focusing on understanding why many consumers do not take their prescriptions as directed, and developing solutions to improve behavior of patients around their medications. Annual excess health care costs due to medication non-adherence in the U.S. are estimated to be as much as $300 billion annually.
