  • Drive adherence through simplification and consolidation -- In a fragmented health care system, there are numerous sources of complexity that may interfere with medication adherence. Patients see multiple physicians, are charged multiple copayments for different medications, may use multiple pharmacies and may have to make many trips to the pharmacy to manage their medications. The research team will seek to assess how actions such as simplifying drug regimens and consolidating pharmacy management services within a "pharmacy home" can improve adherence. This research will provide the basic knowledge needed to help pharmacies, insurers and doctors simplify medication use and encourage adherence.
  • Evaluate the clinical and financial value of adherence incentives -- Scientific literature has discussed the notion that rewarding desired behavior is a powerful tool to stimulate that behavior. The team is developing a randomized controlled trial of the effects of providing rewards for optimal medication adherence with the goal of better engaging patients in their medical care in order to improve their health. The results can provide a rigorous evaluation of the clinical and financial value of implementing novel insurance designs on patient behavior.
  • Determine how electronic prescribing impacts costs, compliance and safety -- Many health care experts are looking to improved health information technology to reduce health care costs and improve safety. The researchers will examine the role that ePrescribing can play in adherence in helping companies better understand and evaluate how electronic prescriptions and processing impact medication costs, adherence and safety. This is especially important as Medicare has launched an initiative to drive electronic prescriptions.
