Dr. Adams’ work has focused on the determinants of suboptimal use of potentially beneficial health care services among disparities populations, including racial differences in medication adherence and the impact of changes in health policy on access to high quality health services and health outcomes for vulnerable patients. Dr. Adams is a member of the Kaiser Permanente Disparities Working Group and the Advisory Committee on Quality for the California Health Families Program.


Drug Benefit Design and Adherence Disparities in Older Adults

Our prior study examined the impact of one aspect of Medicare Part D, the removal of limits on the number of reimbursable prescriptions per month (drug caps) on racial differences in chronic disease treatment among dual Medicare and Medicaid enrollees with complex medical conditions. Among dual enrollees with diabetes and common comorbidities, white-black treatment gaps that were present at baseline (e.g., lipid lowering therapy, antidepressants) persisted among patients 65 and older) and worsened among women and those 65 and younger. The primary objective of this study is to enhance our understanding of persistent disparities in treatment adherence and the equity effects of changes in drug coverage in order to reduce disparities in treatment adherence among older adults with complex medical conditions.

Improving Outcomes and Care Experience among Dual-Eligible Members

This study will be one of the first to examine the relationship between health-system factors across the continuum of care (pharmacy, hospital, primary care) and health-care quality and outcomes among vulnerable, dual-eligible, managed-care members. In addition, we will use geographically-tagged data on social determinants of health, or neighborhoods where these members live, to identify geographic clusters of patients who are at higher risk for suboptimal health outcomes. Further, we will leverage simulation methods to evaluate the potential impact of addressing these factors on future utilization.

Advancing Geriatrics Infrastructure and Network Growth (AGING) Initiative

​The Advancing Geriatrics Infrastructure and Network Growth (AGING) Initiative was initiated in 2014 to bridge the Health Care Systems Research Network (HCSRN) with the Older Americans Independence Centers (OAICs, also known as “Pepper Centers”) in order to advance an interdisciplinary research agenda focused on older adults with multiple chronic conditions. The overarching aim of this current project is to build upon AGING’s efforts to create a mature and sustainable infrastructure to advance an interdisciplinary research agenda to improve the care and well-being of these adults.

Does Free Medicines Coverage Improve Diabetes Self-Care and Outcomes for Diverse Populations?

A quasi-experimental longitudinal study to evaluate the impact of KPHI WellRx — a program intended to engage patients more effectively in their self-care — among a diverse cohort of patients with diabetes. The study will evaluate: (1) the offering of the free WellRx Pilot from January 2012 through December 2014 to selected employers and patients; and (2) the end of the free program with the option for selected employers to purchase WellRx beginning in 2015.

Predictive Modeling to Aid Clinical Decision-Making and Improve Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Outcomes

This 18-month research project will bring together a multidisciplinary team of scientists and clinicians from four Kaiser Permanente regions (Kaiser Permanente Northern California, Kaiser Permanente Colorado, Kaiser Permanente Hawaii, and Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States) to identify patients most likely to benefit from intensive monitoring of diabetic peripheral neuropathy symptoms using predictive modeling strategies. The long-term goal of this study is to improve medical management of diabetic peripheral neuropathy while enhancing both the patient and provider experience and reducing healthcare costs.

Balancing Treatment Outcomes and Medication Burden among Patients with Symptomatic Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

This project is a continuation of a study we recently conducted to identify and prioritize treatment outcomes of relevance to patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). DPN affects 30% to 50% of all adults with diabetes and symptoms such as pain, tingling, numbness or a burning sensation in the extremities can be sudden and severe. Currently, only two prescription medications are approved for treatment of DPN symptoms, though many more are routinely used in practice. Clinical trials suggest that commonly used therapies have similar efficacy with respect to pain relief. However, side effects are common and little is known about the relative efficacy of these medications in addressing other patient-valued outcomes (e.g., quality of life). The goal of the proposal is to evaluate whether a clinical decision aid that includes information on patient treatment preferences can improve treatment persistence and outcomes that are important to patients.
