CVS Caremark Launches Chronic Cardiovascular Disease Medication Adherence Program
Date:11/9/2011

WOONSOCKET, R.I., Nov. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to attack the high costs of cardiovascular  illnesses and to improve the treatment outcomes of cardiac patients, CVS Caremark (NYSE: CVS) has launched Pharmacy Advisor™ for chronic cardiovascular care, a pharmacy-based approach to managing one of the most prevalent and expensive chronic illnesses.

The program, which combines pharmacy benefit management (PBM) insights and solutions with pharmacist interventions, ensures that patients follow their medication regimens to achieve optimal health outcomes.  Pharmacy Advisor™ for chronic cardiovascular care will initially focus on improving medication adherence for four conditions: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease (CAD) and congestive heart failure (CHF).  High blood pressure alone affects one in three adults and costs the health care system approximately $76 billion a year.

"As a pharmacy innovation company, it is our responsibility to continue to find new and effective ways to help people on their path to better health," said Helena Foulkes, executive vice president, Chief Health Care Strategy and Marketing Officer for CVS Caremark. "The introduction of the Pharmacy Advisor program for chronic cardiovascular conditions allows us to take a new approach to an old challenge.  This is another example of how we combine our research and pharmacy care expertise with our unparalleled access to consumers to make a difference for PBM clients and their members."

The launch of Pharmacy Advisor™ for chronic cardiovascular conditions follows recent research conducted by CVS Caremark, Harvard University and Brigham and Women's Hospital that quantified for the first time how much can be saved per patient by improving medication adherence f
