- Prescription Savings Club Membership Drives Medication Adherence: This study assessed the impact of enrollment in Walgreens Prescription Savings Club (PSC) on patient adherence to prescriptions used to treat diabetes. Comparison of medication adherence between PSC members and non-members revealed a nearly 10 percent higher medication possession rate for PSC members (77.9 percent vs. 68.0 percent). An increasing number of large employers are seeking methods to improve patient adherence. This study offers evidence that prescription discount memberships may improve medication adherence.
- Impact of Community Pharmacist-Led Counseling on Patient Medication Adherence: This study demonstrated that pharmacist-led, face-to-face patient counseling significantly improves adherence to statin and thyroid medications in new-to-therapy patients. The pharmacist-led counseling resulted in an increase in one-year patient medication possession from 44 percent before the introduction of the program to 56 percent after the introduction of the program. Medication possession in a control group of patients of similar pharmacies without the program showed no significant increase in medication possession.
- Impact of HIV-Specialized Pharmacies on Adherence to Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) Walgreens HIV Centers of Excellence (COE) pharmacies offer specialized services for HIV patients aimed at combatting barriers to adherence, which can lead to longer, healthier lives. At COE pharmacies, 62 percent of patients had adherence of 85 percent or more, compared with 57 percent of patients using community pharmacies.
