Boston-based Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) has selected Hoboken, N.J.-based Care Management International Inc. to administer the enrollment phase of a member outreach clinical trial.

Funded by the National Institutes of Health, the trial will assess whether education from clinical coaches improves adherence to osteoporosis medication in elderly members who are covered by the Pharmaceutical Assistance Contract for the Elderly (PACE) program. PACE is a state-run prescription program for Pennsylvania residents with limited incomes, who are 65 older enrolled in a prescription assistance program.

Care Management International's specific charter is to provide BWH with enrollment services and operational metrics on call summary statistics while gathering demographic data typically not available in the enrollment phase of these projects.
