Results Summary and Professional Abstract
|Article Highlight: People who enroll in Medicare Part D, which covers prescription medicines, must choose a plan, but many people struggle to make an informed choice. Researchers on this study created a decision aid to help people choose among the options based on what is most important to them. They then tested whether the decision aid, with or without machine-based, personalized expert recommendations, influenced outcomes for Medicare Part D enrollees. Results published in Health Affairs show that patients who used the decision aid reported increased satisfaction with the process of choosing a prescription drug plan and the amount of time they spent choosing a plan.|
