Abstract: 

Muskie staff will prepare a white paper summarizing the existing evidence on successful medication management strategies to help inform future grant-making by the Foundation and program implementation by current and future grantees. The summary will assess strategies that have been proven effective in improving adherence, optimizing therapeutic outcomes, reducing overuse of medications and improving appropriateness of drugs prescribed for uninsured and underinsured individuals. It will particularly focus on strategies focused on chronic care management and/or strategies employed to improve medication management during transitions in care from one setting to another.
