Tria Health was founded on the belief that pharmacists play a vital role in the management of high-risk patients that drive the majority of health care spend. Medications treat chronic conditions, but research shows that 50% of patients do not take their medication as prescribed and 16% of US health care spend is related to non-optimized medication use.[i] Tria’s Chronic Condition Management (CCM) is an effective and proven solution to uncover the “why” behind non-optimized drug use and to prevent unnecessary health care claims from occurring.
Tria Health’s pharmacists work one on one with patients and their physician(s) to ensure medication sare safe, affordable and effective. Through such efforts, Tria’s services help employers reduce risk and control cost through true patient engagement. Without an effective CCM strategy, this high-risk population will continue to face wellness and financial obstacles, leading to increased health care costs for employers and their members.
Tria Health's core solution is our Pharmacy Advocate Program, a telehealth solution. Tria Health conducts claims analysis via our proprietary software, SmartRx℠, to identify the 21% of members that drive the majority of avoidable health care costs. Tria outreaches to these members through a variety of communication channels to engage with a pharmacist. Tria's pharmacists consult with patients one-on-one offering a patient-centric approach to ensure all conditions are controlled properly. A patient-centered approach versus a disease-specific approach is especially important because 60% of US adults have one or more chronic condition, 48% have three or more and health care costs increase exponentially with each condition.
Pharmacists are the perfect partners for patients and their prescribing physicians. They are able to optimize medication use and provide condition education and motivation techniques for better condition management. This proven model maximizes the use of technology and the personal approach to deiver improved clinical and financial outcomes. Tria Health averages a 3.6:1 return on investment and saves an average of $2,080 per engaged member.
