John Hopkins Medicine, Walgreens Collaborate on Population-Based Research and Chronic Disease Patient Protocols
Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM) and Walgreens are to develop large scale population-based research ideas and protocols to improve the outcomes of patients with diseases like asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and heart disease.
The agreement sets up opportunities for the following:
- Research programs: Walgreens' research team and JHM experts will develop new ideas for research in disease management, screening and prevention that they will spin off into proposals for funding.
- Clinical protocol development/review: Johns Hopkins faculty will work closely with Walgreen experts to review and improve care.
- Professional training: JHM plans to leverage its existing onsite and distance education for medical professionals and develop a comprehensive program for Walgreens professionals as well.
- Clinical program development and health plan services: JHM and Walgreens will explore the possibility of jointly developing lifestyle, chronic care and disease-specific programs.
In addition, JHM and Walgreens will jointly explore the development of new models for improving care for individuals. This will include the creation of new educational and training programs for Walgreens' 70,000 healthcare service providers.
