In addition, you'll look at the evidence for new mental health care technologies including behavioral health coaching, virtual care and CBT content.

Medication Adherence: Addressing Challenges to Maximize Outcomes


March 11, 2020

For patients to achieve the desired clinical benefits of medications, it’s critical to take them as prescribed. Employers are equally impacted by patient choices to be medication compliant as they face rising costs of $100-300 billion annually in this space. Join 3 employers as they tackle the challenge of medication non-adherence. Whirlpool Corporation, Cummins, and Community Health Network will present strategies for appropriate medication use, share the challenges with medication adherence, exercise the audience members’ thought leadership around adherence, and discuss program ideas for employers to improve medication adherence to maximize the value of their pharmacy benefit. The price of Non-Adherence is too great to not join in this conversation.
