This new program, a first in California, eliminates the guesswork when taking complicated or multiple prescriptions by giving members with a 30-day supply of their medications, sent to their homes, in pre-sorted packets marked with your day, time and date the medications should be taken. In addition, because individuals who take more medicines will get it difficult to adhere to their medicine regimens, members will benefit from a group of DailyMed pharmacists who will provide coordinated treatment and phone consultations to closely monitor the safety, efficacy and compliance of their medicine therapy. It is well-documented that better adherence to treatment suggestions and medicine compliance keeps people healthier for a much longer period of time, while reducing hospitalizations and additional healthcare related costs.Surgical patients with acute anemia, including cardiac medical procedures patients, are major recipients of RBC transfusions.
