Adherence, adherence, adherence. That is the buzzword on the minds of healthcare practitioners around the country. Prescribers and pharmacists around the country are developing new and innovative ways to collaborate and improve patient health measures and adherence rates in at-risk populations. However, unless our healthcare providers are constantly contacting patients in the time between refills or office visits, we truly don't have very good insight into their behaviors until we see lab results that say otherwise.
Let's consider adding a third arm into the idea of collaborative practice: health and fitness centers. Picture a patient seeing their doctor, their pharmacist, then being promoted from the pharmacy to a fitness center that has classes geared towards diabetics for example. A community of people with similar disease states being incentivized to take charge of the health with adherence-linked discounted rates could prove to be a motivating factor into improved outcomes.
