A Novel Home-Based Medication Management Program and Its Influence on Hospitalization Rates Among Home Health Care Recipients

November 18, 2023

Patients do not take their medicine as prescribed 50% of the time, and of medication-related hospital admissions in the United States, 33% to 69% are due to poor medication adherence, at a cost of approximately $100 billion a year. Continue CareRx (CCRx) is a novel home-based medication management program that includes adherence packaging alongside medication reconciliation, review, and education by clinicians. We hypothesized that home health patients receiving the CCRx service may have a lower hospitalization rate than control home health patients.
