Study Reveals Patient Portal Progress at Kaiser

Date: 01.24.2014 | Zach Urbina">Zach Urbina

A recent study at the University of California San Francisco and the University of Washington revealed a significant uptick in medication adherence for diabetic patients who used an online portal to refill prescriptions.

The study looked at 18,000 Kaiser patients over five years. Individuals who requested statin refills solely via an internet-based portal increased medication adherence by 6% and decreased their risk of higher cholesterol levels by 6%.

Of the more than 9 million Kaiser patients currently covered, 4.1 million utilize an online portal.
