Walgreens recently announced the launch of its Center for Health & Wellbeing Research, a website documenting roughly 50 outcomes from studies the company undertook in the past six years.
“We are thrilled to be unveiling the Walgreens Center for Health & Wellbeing Research,” Dr. Harry Leider, chief medical officer and group vice president of Walgreens, said in a statement. “Our goal is, through scientific research, to help improve patient care and outcomes while lowering health care costs. We are dedicated to providing value to health care on a national scale and the Walgreens Center for Health & Wellbeing Research will showcase the work we are doing every day to advance that mission.”
Visitors to the site can find research related to access to care and patient experience, adherence and clinical outcomes, digital health and member engagement, health care costs, HIV and specialty pharmacy, vaccinations and more.
“Walgreens has been a valued partner in a long-standing and productive collaboration, which has given our clinical and research faculty the opportunity to develop, implement and evaluate novel programs to reach patients where they are to improve their access to quality care,” Dr. Jeanne M. Clark, a professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, said. “We are looking forward to continuing our work together.”
