Thursday, February 18, 2016 – 2:00pm – 3:00pm ET
“One of the main goals of the New York State Prevention Agenda is to increase access to high quality chronic disease preventive care and management in both clinical and community settings. A key focus for achieving this goal is to support patients to adhere to medication regiments to effectively manage their condition. Moreover, there are serious impacts of non-adherence in terms of costs and health outcomes. Through evidence-based services, medication adherence can be improved to assist those with chronic conditions maintain or improve their health. Relevant Prevention Agenda recommendations include adopting medical home or team-based care models, incentivizing quality improvement, reducing or eliminating out-of-pocket costs for clinical and community preventive services, and coordinating with clinicians to establish and implement patient reminder systems for preventive and follow-up care.”
