Notes
  • Objective: To assess the relationship between diabetic medication adherence, total healthcare costs, and utilization within patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and concomitant diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Research design and methods: This study was a retrospective analysis of pharmacy and medical claims from 1 April 1998 through 31 March 2000 within a managed care organization Results: For diabetes patients with <=​75, >75 to <=​95, and >95% adherence, adjusted total healthcare costs (from April 1998 to March 2000) were $US5706, $US5314, and $US4835, respectively (p < 0.001). Patients with <=​75 and >75 to <=​95% adherence had a 31% and 19% greater chance of a hospital/​ER admission than those in the >95% cohort, respectively. Adjusted healthcare costs (from April 1998 to March 2000) for those with <=​75, >75 to <=​95, and >95% adherence within the diabetes + CVD cohort was $US37 Conclusions: Higher adherence to oral antihyperglycemic agents is associated with lower healthcare resource utilization and costs for patients with diabetes only and patients with concomitant diabetes and CVD.
