Patient-focused care for optimal health outcomes.
Tria Health is driven by an understanding that pharmacists make a difference in helping patients manage their chronic conditions. Rising health care costs are a concern for employers and health plans. Chronic conditions have a big impact on these costs because they represent 86% of total health care spend. Medication management is key to effectively managing these conditions, yet 50% of people don’t take medications as prescribed increasing health risks and costs.
Since the beginning, Tria Health has provided personalized pharmacy care to members of self-insured employers and health plans. This innovative, patient-focused approach reduces costs and improves the health of their members and their bottom line.
Tria Health was founded in 2009 as a pilot program for a PBM client that was concerned about the rising cost and prevalence of Diabetes among their members. The goal of the program was to reduce costs and improve the health for this high-risk population. Tria Health utilized specially trained pharmacists to provide one-on-one counseling to members on their medication regimen, which is critically important in managing Diabetes. In addition, the pharmacists discussed lifestyle, exercise and other habits impactful to condition management. Medication management improved and health costs declined. The results of the pilot were so successful that Tria Health was born. Tria Health expanded to include more chronic conditions and specialty medications and has continued to innovate over time to meet market needs. The name Tria Health comes from the circle of care we facilitate. Tria – represents the collaboration among the pharmacist, patient and physician to deliver the best possible health outcome for the patient.
Tria Health was founded on the commitment to better our patients’ health and ensure medications are safe, affordable and effective. We believe that pharmacists play an incredibly important role in the health care due to the number of medications used to manage our health. And, in general, pharmacists medication expertise is a largely untapped resource that Tria Health expands upon.
Rising drug costs have received a lot of media attention. Unfortunately, medication costs are one small piece of the health care puzzle and do not address the real issue. To reduce health care costs, we must improve the health of our members. Over 50% of the population has one chronic condition and 25% have multiple conditions. This number continues to grow. Health care costs increase exponentially as the number of chronic conditions increase. Medication is critical to managing these conditions, but half of the time people aren’t taking their medications correctly for a variety of reasons.
These reasons are very unique and require a medication expert, like a pharmacist, to identify and resolve health care gaps and coordinate care with the patient’s health care provider(s). It’s what we do at Tria Health and it works.
Tria Health focuses on resolving the high costs and health risks associated with the mismanagement of medication. We address these issues in three ways. First, we identify and target high-risk, high cost patients to have one-on-one consultations with our specially trained pharmacists through our Pharmacy Advocate Program. Tria Health pharmacists take the time to go through each medication to ensure it is safe, effective and affordable. They communicate any problems or recommendations to both the patient and their primary care physician. Second, our Specialty GuardRx provides independent oversight for patients taking expensive specialty medications to ensure both the patient and the plan is maximizing and protecting their investment. Our RxPlan Protection Suite manages risk for all plan members improving overall population health.

Tria Health focuses on the entire patient. Over 25% of patients have more than one chronic condition.

This personalized approach is required to improve the health of patients/members. Healthier members are more productive employees.
Medication is required keep many people healthy, active and productive. However, when medication is not right, it causes more problems than it solves and the result can be costly and dangerous. Having a pharmacist who is a medication expert take the time to talk through all medications – prescription, over-the-counter, supplements, along with diet, exercise and other lifestyle habits is critically important to improving overall health. Tria Health provides the medication experts to get the job done right.
The problem with many programs is the lack of member engagement. Since 2009, Tria Health has been working with clients to develop customized engagement plans and communication strategies to meet the goals of plans and their members. Maximizing patient engagement drives results and a higher return on your investment.
