A Rapid Cycle Approach to Improving Medication Adherence Through Incentives and Remote Monitoring for Coronary Artery Disease Patients

Principal Investigators: Kevin Volpp, David Asch

The goal of this project is to improve medication adherence and health outcomes in post-discharge patients who are recovering from acute myocardial infarctions.  Such patients typically have high rates of poor medication adherence and hospital readmissions and are costly to monitor through intensive case management.  The intervention will increase medication adherence through use of wireless pill bottles, financial incentives, and social incentives. We are conducting this study in 38 states with 5 major insurer partners. The anticipated result will be improved health outcomes and lower cost.
