About the Medication Adherence Savings Calculator

Research shows that chronically ill patients who adhere to their prescribed medications have a decreased risk of adverse health outcomes, utilization of costly healthcare services (such as hospitalizations and emergency department visits), and mortality. IBI's review of 13 published studies concludes that for some conditions, medication adherence also reduces sick day and short-term disability absences.

Based on the findings of the review article, IBI created a calculator to help employers recognize how adherence with diabetes, hypertension, or high cholesterol medications reduces health care and lost productivity costs—and how much additional savings could be realized by improving adherence rates.

Users can generate results by selecting a condition and providing a count of patients and adherence rates. Changing default pay and benefits information allows for more relevant lost productivity cost estimates.
