Evaluation of AHRQ's Pharmaceutical Outcomes Portfolio
Table 2: Level 1 Findings: Adherence
|Penn||HIV||Found a relationship between adherence and outcomes in HIV and subsequent need to intervene. (Follow-on work was looking at relationship between medication misperceptions and rates of adherence, and medical literacy)|
|Vanderbilt||MI and HF patients||10-20% patients discharged from the hospital with myocardial infarction (MI) or heart failure (HF) and who should be getting follow up medication do not fill the prescription they are given in the hospital and therefore don't receive the benefits|
|Grantee||HIV & HTN patients||Exploration of non-adherence as a revealed preference to understand non-adherence among patients with HIV and hypertension (HTN). Goal was to further understand root causes of non-adherence through the study of preferences. Key finding: differences in ethnic group values.*|
