Four-Year Review of the MedsCheck Diabetes Program
The objective of the study was to describe the demographic and clinical characteristics of MedsCheck Diabetes recipients in Ontario between program launch on September 1, 2010, and
March 31, 2014.
This cohort study leveraged linked administrative claims data. Trends in MedsCheck Diabetes claims and recipient characteristics were examined.
Over the first 3.5 years of the program, approximately half of Ontarians with diabetes received a MedsCheck. Follow-up assessments were low. Ongoing evaluation of the program is required to ensure that continuity of care is being provided to this population.
