More than nine percent of the US population suffers from diabetes.
And 1.5 million people are diagnosed with this costly and chronic disease each year. For Bon Secours Mercy Health (BSMH), a large hospital system that serves poor and underserved people in the Midwest, reducing the cost and community impact of diabetes was an urgent matter. Finding a pharmacy benefit manager that could support their initiatives with clinical expertise and up-to-the minute data about its patient population and individual high-risk members was key.
