Health plans, provider groups, life science organizations, and strategic partners all know one simple fact—if an individual doesn’t know enough to feel comfortable about taking their medications, they won’t maintain medication adherence. As medications become increasingly more complex, it’s more critical than ever to have a robust member education program.
Limited member education shouldn’t stop anyone from getting the most out of a new prescription. When you partner with Aspen RxHealth, our clinical pharmacists have the skills and experience to motivate, educate, and empower individuals to take control of their health and improve medication adherence.

Health plan member education is an initiative that many health plans undertake with the goal of ultimately improving the health of their members. If members are more informed about their health, the risks of unhealthy behaviors, how their medications work, and how to improve their conditions, they are better equipped to make positive changes and improve their health.
When educated health plan members take action to improve their health, everybody wins. Members benefit from an improved quality of life, while their health plan benefits from reduced care costs and healthier populations.
The best way for health plans to educate their members about medications and how they work to improve member health is through pharmacist-led programs. Pharmacists are uniquely suited to educate members about medications because they’re the top medication experts within healthcare.
When health plan members are better educated about their health, they’re more likely to take an active role in their health and well-being. Education on topics such as medications, healthy behaviors, and chronic disease management equips members to identify problems and proactively treat them with the help of their physician and/or pharmacist.
