TAKE YOUR MEDS!: Pharmacy benefits manager Express Scripts Inc. is launching a program that aims to help patients stay on their medications by predicting who will stop taking prescriptions before the person actually does it.
HOW IT WORKS: The product uses a computer to analyze hundreds of factors that could affect a patient's compliance and then flags people deemed likely to forget a refill or stop taking their drugs. Express Scripts then will work with the patients to help them stay on their prescriptions.
ABOUT EXPRESS SCRIPTS: Pharmacy benefits managers run prescription drug plans for employers, government agencies and other clients.
