Improving Patient Adherence With Prescription Medications

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the direct cost of non-adherence is $100 billion to $289 billion annually.  20% to 30% of medication prescriptions are never filled, and 50% of medications are not continued as prescribed.  Consequently, it costs $2,000 per patient in physician visits annually.  Moreover, non-adherence causes approximately 30% to 50% of treatment failures and 125,000 deaths annually.

The costs of non-adherence, both in dollars and quality of patient life, are excessive.  Healthcare providers and their patients would significantly benefit from a solution that promotes improved medication adherence
