Beginning in January, we will contact select members and invite them to participate in a research study investigating ways to get patients to take their medications as prescribed. The study offers a wonderful opportunity to help members stay healthy, as up to 69% of all medication-related hospital admissions in the United States are a result of patients not taking their medications as prescribed1. Participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
To see the invitation and learn more about the study, please see the recruitment letter.
