CVS Caremark Research Finds Medication Adherence Can Improve Outcomes and Reduce Costs for Patients with Coronary Artery Disease

WOONSOCKET, R.I., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Heart disease costs the United States $108.9 billion each year according to the Centers for Disease Control, but there are ways those costs can be controlled. Research published in the April issue of the American Journal of Medicine found that patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) who are adherent to their prescribed medications can save the health care system up to $868 per patient per year.  The study, conducted by researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital and CVS Caremark (NYSE: CVS), found a consistent trend toward improvement in coronary artery-related events, mortality, readmissions, and costs among those patients who most adhered to their medication regimens.
