CVS Caremark Study Finds Integrated Pharmacy-Based Program Improved Diabetes Medication Initiation and Adherence Rates
Date:1/9/2012

ce to existing medication regimens and initiate missing therapies should be of great value," the researchers concluded. 

CVS Caremark has been working in a three-year collaboration with Harvard University and Brigham and Women's Hospital to research pharmacy claims data in order to better understand patient behavior, particularly around medication adherence. Annual excess health care costs due to medication non-adherence in the U.S. have been estimated to be as much as $290 billion annually.

The study reviewed data of CVS Caremark's pilot Pharmacy Advisor™ program. That program is being expanded in 2012 to include counseling for patients with cardiovascular disease, in addition to the more than 12 million members who are part of the diabetes-focused counseling. Through Pharmacy Advisor™, CVS Caremark has engaged PBM members who are diagnosed with diabetes, according to their expressed preferences at points when they are most receptive about their prescribed therapy: face-to-face when members choose to fill their prescriptions at a CVS/pharmacy or by phone if the members use home delivery. The use of the integrated tactics drives behavior change in the short term and over time leads to better clinical outcomes. In addition to improving medication adherence, thus saving money and improving the quality of treatment, the program closes gaps in care and directs members with chronic conditions to existing disease management programs where they can obtain additional support.
