Effects of Home Delivery of Prescription Drugs

Summer 2011

The goal of this project was to understand the financial and health effects of home delivery of prescription drugs. More specifically, we sought to understand how encouraging people to adopt home delivery of maintenance medications affected health care costs and health outcomes. The results of our research are relevant to policymakers and healthcare industry professionals seeking to reduce health care costs while maintaining or improving health care quality.
