Curant Health celebrates our community: a shared commitment to HIV patients
Representatives from Curant Health recently celebrated our shared commitment to serving the HIV community with many of our partners attending the National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care and Treatment in Washington, DC. Our reception brought old and new friends together with a focus on Celebrating Our Community.
Dr. Jim Raper, Director of the UAB 1917 HIV Outpatient, Dental and Research Clinic in Birmingham, Alabama and arguably one of the leading voices for patient care in the HIV community, attended the event and shared a key message: personalized medication management works.
Patrick Dunham, Curant Health President and CEO, addressed the audience toward the end of the evening and spoke about the importance of keeping the patient at the forefront of all decisions on care and in all measures of program success. He underscored this focus in referencing the importance of partnership in supporting the HIV community. He provided several examples where Curant Health, along with our clinical partners, has delivered outstanding patient outcomes through our personalized medication management program:
- Thrive Alabama, where a study of HIV patients enrolled with Curant Health from June 2011-May 2014 showed that 69% of patients who were not virally suppressed prior to enrollment were virally suppressed at follow-up after enrollment in the program;
- The University of Alabama Birmingham 1917 Clinic, where Curant’s medication management program led to viral suppression in 103 HIV patients out of 157 who were not suppressed prior to program enrollment;
- In a study of 130 patients with our partner, Virginia Commonwealth University, 87% of our shared patients were determined to be adherent to antiretroviral therapy (ART).
