    Medication adherence and your bottom line

    What is medication adherence? It is taking the right medication, at the right dosage, at the right time in the right frequency. It seems simple enough, but lack of adherence can have compounding effects on individuals, leading to increased illness, hospitalization and even death. According to the CDC, upwards of 125,000 deaths in the United States annually can be attributed to medication non-adherence.

    In this one-hour interactive webinar, led by Kim Foerster, Director of Pharmacy Account Management at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, HR professionals and benefits managers will learn about the factors that influence non-adherence, understand the barriers individuals have in getting medication and solutions to promote a healthier workplace.

    Putting the value in value-based care

    Everyone wants access to the highest-quality care. Everyone wants health care to be less costly. But how?

    Blueprint for Affordability is the next wave in moving from fee-for-service care to value-based care by balancing the financial responsibility for managing the cost and quality of health care. It’s an agreement where physician organizations and health systems aim to manage their patients’ health, lower their total cost of care and ultimately lower your company’s health care spend.

    In this one-hour interactive webinar, led by Faris Ahmad, MD, and Amy McKenzie, MD, of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, HR professionals and benefits managers will gain a better understanding of the core principles of value-based care, what their employees can expect with this shift in care and how value-based care can help drive down health care costs for their organization.
