About the 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.

Based on the original research review, 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.

In 2021, IBI added behavioral health conditions, and published a systematic review of literature linking medication adherence to productivity outcomes for employees with depression and anxiety as
a stand-alone condition as well as a mediating co-morbid condition and how productivity is affected through improved medication adherence. 

Users can generate results by selecting a condition and providing a count of patients and adherence rates. Adjusting the pay and benefits information allows for estimates to be more relevant to your workforce.
