Medco Wins 2011 URAC Award for Best Practices in Health Care Consumer Empowerment and Protection
Date:10/7/2011

ved clinical outcomes as compared with patients whose adherence rates are below the threshold.  

"With medication-related hospitalizations due to poor adherence ranging from 33 to 69 percent, and direct and indirect health care costs estimated at $290 billion annually, it is critical for us to address and improve patient medication adherence," said Dr. Glen Stettin, Medco's chief medical officer.  "Our experience and evidence shows that Medco specialist pharmacists, working with advanced pharmacy technology, can effectively help patients close gaps in their care and improve their adherence.

"Earning the Silver Award from URAC is a tremendous honor recognizing the important work our pharmacists do to improve our patient's health and well-being," Stettin added.

"URAC's Annual Quality Summit provides a unique opportunity for leaders in health care to learn what premier companies are doing to advance consumer empowerment and protection," said Alan P. Spielman, President and CEO of UARC.  "We are proud to honor Medco's program.  By sharing these best practices, we can work to inspire the industry as a whole to adopt proven practices that advance patient safety and empower consumers."

Also recognized by URAC was Medco's Optimal Health® program -- a strategic alliance with Healthways, Inc. -- for improving member engagement in care management.  Optimal Health earned an Honorable Mention Award in the Health Management Category.  Medco and Healthways' presentation focused on how the use of advanced analytics, faster data integration, advanced clinical information systems, and practice collaboration between nurses, health coaches, benefit specialists and specialist pharmacists can better engage patients and encourage participation in a care management program.
