The industry track record for medication adherence is disheartening: about one-third of prescriptions are never filled, those with chronic illness are non-adherent about half of the time, and each year, 125,000 lives are lost to medication non-adherence.

Payors and providers are working to reverse these trends, experimenting with a host of new tactics to identify and work with non-adherent individuals to bring them into compliance with medication care plans. Many are pulling case managers and community pharmacists into patient-centered medical homes to help raise medication adherence levels.

The Guide to Improving Medication Adherence analyzes trends in improving medication adherence at more than 160 healthcare companies, and takes an in-depth look at pioneering efforts by Kaiser Permanente Colorado and CIGNA Pharmacy Management to improve medication compliance levels in their populations. Additionally, Connie Commander, past president of the Case Management Society of America and president of Commanders Premier Consulting Corporation, shares a case manager's take on what's needed to move individuals toward medication compliance.

PLUS Learn how a collaborative pilot between Highmark, the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy and Rite Aid pharmacies is bringing the community pharmacist into the medication adherence equation through the use of motivational interviewing and brief interventions. Dr. Janice Pringle, recently named one of 73 Innovation Advisors by CMS, shares details on this pilot.

This 150-page guide contains more than 50 graphs; the Q&A chapter answers more than 60 questions on programs to boost medication adherence levels.
