Productivity and Medication Adherence: Research identifies positive link between medication adherence and employee productivity.
Chronic diseases such as asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol impact nearly 70 percent of working-age adults in the U.S. While research has demonstrated the impact of medication adherence on reducing overall health care costs, there has been less evidence available to date on whether adherence improves employee productivity. New research conducted by CVS Caremark and Truven Health Analytics (previously the Healthcare business of Thomson Reuters), and published today in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, found that employees with chronic conditions who were adherent to their prescribed medications had up to seven fewer days away from work annually (including absenteeism and short term disability days) than those who were not adherent. This translated into estimated annual savings of up to nearly $1,700 per adherent employee.
