about

Members suffering from multiple chronic conditions who have complex daily medication routines are often challenged by taking their medications as prescribed, are at a greater risk for experiencing issues with their medication regimens, and are frequently non-adherent. The greater likelihood of hospital admissions, readmissions, emergency room visits, and other health care problems resulting from lack of adherence only serves to increase the overall cost of care while decreasing positive health outcomes. These members are already among the most costly for a health plan, but they present a valuable opportunity to leverage innovative medication management solutions to improve member outcomes while helping plans achieve HEDIS® and STAR measure goals.

Attendees will learn: 

  • Innovative approaches to managing complex, high-risk members
  • Better and more-effective ways to integrate medical and pharmacy components to reduce the overall total cost of care
  • The value of in-home, personalized care, as it pertains to positively impacting medical outcomes while reducing the total cost of care.
