Medication non-adherence is a major public health problem in the United States that deprives patients of the full benefits of modern therapy and contributes to costly health complications, the worsening of disease progression, and preventable utilization and costs. Yet since Hippocrates warned us about this problem, it has long persisted. There are effective approaches for improving adherence that have been implemented and well-studied, but the main problem is one of scale: how can we take steps to help patients avoid medications problems when the most effective interventions are also the most expensive? This session will include practical stories from the field about how new predictive analytics used to “hotspot” the specific patients at the greatest risk of non-adherence can fundamentally change how health plans and delivery systems think about this problem and how they interact with patients. We’ll share early results and suggest new directions in how predictive analytics combined with new incentives in health care can usher in new care delivery strategies and innovations – along with new technologies – in improving how we take care of patients.
