AJMC Staff
These findings highlighted that adherence to drugs is not the sole issue to address in patients with comorbidities also serving as vital factors in designing managed care plans.
Welcome to Paper of the Week, which looks back at important papers over the past 25 years of The American Journal of Managed Care® and why they matter today.

Amid innovations within HIV treatment and care, this week’s 1998 paper spotlighted how the prevalence of comorbidities such as anemia and syphilis impacted delivery of care for out-of-treatment drug users.

Analyzing data derived from a managed care model, researcher Isaac D. Montoya, PhD, found that a high rate of male and female drug users with HIV had syphilis and anemia. These findings highlighted that adherence to drugs is not the sole issue to address in patients with comorbidities also serving as vital factors in designing managed care plans.
