Study: Kaiser’s Online Refill Tool Helped Boost Medication Adherence Rates Among Patients With Type 2 Diabetes
Kaiser Health System's online prescription drug refill tool increased medication adherence for the system's diabetes patients, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association. For the study, researchers at Kaiser and UC-San Francisco compared medication adherence rates of Type 2 diabetes patients who used the tool with those who did not. They found that those who used the tool reduced their time without their medication by more than 3%.
