Develop an adherence game plan Planets aligned; adherence is in the middle of the radar - The Age of Adherence Big Picture approach 1 x 1 x 1 challenge Systemic problem / systems-wide solutions Everyone into the pool – Part D and Health Care Reform as drivers Role for all / Responsibilities for all Impacts are order of magnitude (Diabetes, Asthma, COPD, CVD, Cancer........) for pts., providers, pharma, payors Prove It -- The Age of Evidence
Develop an adherence game plan Enhancing Prescription Medicine Adherence: A National Action Plan (2007) National awareness required (HBP model) Increased emphasis on provider and student education & training Multidisciplinary approach to adherence education and management Address the barriers for patients with low health literacy Increase funding / rigorous research agenda
Develop an adherence game plan Enhancing Prescription Medicine Adherence: A National Action Plan Create the means to share information about best practices in adherence education and management Remove roadblocks for adherence assistance programs
Develop an adherence game plan Other Action Plans / Other Action Pathways NCL Collaborative National Awareness Campaign NEHI Action Series Call for care team demo projects System-wide approach to improving medication adherence for chronic disease Roundtable /Roundtable Highlights Similar Commitments Similar Goals Similar Requirements (resources, research, evidence, systems-wide, patient inclusive)
Take a multi-stakeholder approach Medicine Education Team – Patient is a key player (NCPIE approach); Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC): The Pt. Centered Medical Home: Integrating Comprehensive Medication Management to Optimize Patient Outcomes (Center believes that the ability to maximize the appropriate use of medications to prevent and control disease is critical to the success of the PCMH)
Take a multi-stakeholder approach THE PATIENT AS A KEY PLAYER Initiator (or not) As different as night and day What motivates you doesnt motivate me (visa versa) Lots of stuff going on; making medicine use relevant / important; Reaching you (Blackberry/ Apps) may not work for your mom
Advance adherence @ the point of prescribing & along the patient pathway Reintroducing the Oldest Advance in Medicine – TALKING (NCPIE, 1989) An assessment of the patients medication-related needs Identification of the patients medication-related problems Development of a care plan with individualized therapy goals and personalized interventions Follow-up evaluation to determine actual patient outcomes (2010, PCPCC, The Pt. Centered Medical Home: Integrating Comprehensive Medication Management to Optimize Patient Outcomes
Advance adherence @ the point of prescribing & along the patient pathway As in football, handoffs (care transitions) are important (Pre-prescribing; prescribing; post prescribing) Empowerment begins /ends @t home; make notes/take notes before, during, after; other ears & eyes Lets Talk (Ask/Tell); motivational interviewing; putting adherence assessment tools/techniques to work; if you dont know what to ask, you cant ask; medicine list as a trigger; Care teams -- comprised of both physicians and non- physician caregivers, including professionals such as community pharmacists who operate outside the physician practice (NEHI)
Advance adherence @ the point of prescribing & along the patient pathway As in football, handoffs are important (Pre- prescribing; prescribing; post-prescribing) Medication reconciliation – going in/inside/ going out (home); what about other team members (primary provider; neurologist, gastroenterologist, ophthalmologist, psychiatrist) Home supports – written medicine information is undergoing a make-over (in quest for a single document solution); adherence packaging; refill reminders / alerts; help lines Hi Tech – e-prescribing, PMR/EMR; online tools / supports; unlimited potentials / evidence?
Advance adherence @ the point of prescribing & along the patient pathway As in football, handoffs are important (Pre-prescribing; prescribing; post-prescribing) Prescriber / Patient Interface – (Adherence Red Zone) Pharmacist / Patient Interface - (Adherence Red Zone) Optimizing Healthcare Provider Supports Optimizing Patient Supports – family members, other caregivers; aids, devices (all the Xs & Os on the board)
