CVS Caremark Undertakes Multi-Year Study to Improve Patient Medication Adherence
Date:10/14/2009

s understand the reasons why patients do not take their medications as prescribed. We will use this information to develop effective, evidence-based approaches to improve prescription adherence," said William Shrank, M.D., MSHS of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and principal investigator of the program. "We'll strive to better understand barriers to adherence that range from patient characteristics (e.g. income or marital status); patients' attitudes about their condition and the importance of medicine; understanding how to take medications appropriately; the impact of complex therapy; and, the trust and communication between the patient, the physician and the pharmacist. We hope this research will help us create strategies to promote wellness in our patients. "
