Many eligible patients report no statin offer

A JAMA meta-analysis indicated that when prescribed to patients with coronary heart disease (CHD), statins reduced ischemia by 61%. But more than half of statin-eligible patients reported never being offered by their doctor. Among those offered, side effects were the most common concern, and most were willing to consider (or reconsider) if their doctor offered.

To reduce risk among patients battling chronic disease, or those on the cusp, check out OHN’s best practice protocols and coding tips for statin use. Stay tuned for support and outreach offerings from our Pharmacy team coming soon!
