CVS Caremark Data Confirms Improved Outcomes for Women with Osteoporosis Who are Adherent to Therapy
Date:5/11/2009

and those women who take and remain adherent to therapy are better able to maintain their mobility and quality of life while avoiding costly fractures."

The study analyzed women diagnosed with osteoporosis over a two-year period. Untreated women less than 65 years of age were 5.7 times more likely to experience a fracture than those treated with a bisphosphonate, estrogen, or other hormone-related osteoporosis therapy. This study evaluated aggregated and de-identified data for almost 400,000 women from the CVS Caremark Health Management Claims Database who had incurred claims between 01/01/07 and 12/31/08. All study participants were continuously eligible for medical and pharmacy benefits throughout the evaluation period. This analysis is an observational study only, and the results demonstrate a relationship between osteoporosis, osteoporotic pharmacotherapy, and fractures; however, as in most observational studies, the causal nature of this relationship cannot be strictly determined.

"The National Osteoporosis Foundation emphasizes the importance of patient adherence and persistence to a prescribed treatment regimen in order to get the maximum benefit from a medication," said Robert Recker, M.D., president of the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF). "NOF is proud to sponsor National Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month in May as an opportunity to raise awareness of this disease, help women understand their risk for developing osteoporosis and provide information about the treatments available today to help manage osteoporosis and reduce the risk of fracture."
