ill program with your retail or mail-order pharmacy to keep your prescription refills on track and on time."

The study evaluated de-identified data for more than 1,000 heart failure patients from CVS Caremark's Medical Claims Research Database who had an in-patient hospitalization for heart failure between April 1, 2006 and March 31, 2007. The follow-up period for subsequent hospitalizations was for the 12-months following the initial hospitalization date. All study participants were continuously eligible for medical and pharmacy benefits through the index and follow-up periods. The results from this analysis demonstrate a significant link between medication adherence and health services utilization. However, as in most observational studies, the causal nature of this relationship cannot be strictly determined.
