Data is a powerful starting point for managing and monitoring medication adherence in groups of high-risk patients. Early consultations with these patients, and keeping them on drug therapy plans, can greatly reduce healthcare costs while keeping patients healthier.
Medication non-adherence costs to the U.S. healthcare system1
Hospitals hit with readmission penalties by CMS in 20192
Cost to health systems per non-adherent patients, per year, who have at least one additional chronic condition3
Taking a Broad View of Medication Adherence
Using MedHx PRM, care managers can prioritize, monitor, and intervene with high-risk patients.
View overall med adherence of multiple groups of high-risk patients.
Ex. Hypertension, Diabetes, Socially Vulnerable
Care providers sort and identify non-adherent patients within that group and intervene accordingly.
Ex. Hypertension Patients
Care providers see details about an individual patient’s medication history and prescription fill patterns to guide a meaningful discussion with the patient.
Ex. John Doe
“As part of our Mobile-Integrated Health Community Paramedicine medication adherence program, we focused on patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We were able to merge Epic Clarity data with MedHx PRM data and calculate first fill rates for new medications. Over a six-month study period, first fill rates increased 10% for CHF patients and increased 15% for COPD patients. We also found medication adherence for our high-risk patient population improved for 60 days after the intervention.”
