Cigna has released study results finding that "12 percent more individuals participate in health coaching and case management programs when their pharmacy and medical benefits are managed together. In addition, 12 percent more individuals complete multiple health improvement activities when working toward their goals." Cigna's Doctor Scott Josephs tells us "Every time a prescription is filled, there is an underlying medical issue. A real-time view of our customers’ health needs across both their pharmacy and medical benefits enables us to more easily identify and support those who need help in managing their health. We’re able to provide personalized guidance to customers on actions that will drive better health – such as improving adherence to their medications – and provide cost savings for them and their employers."
