Providers, pharmacies, insurers, patients and families all agree that better medication adherence can improve care and reduce costs. The numbers are striking:
- Non-adherence can account for up to 50% of treatment failures, around 125,000 deaths, and up to 25% of hospitalizations each year in the United States contributing $100 billion in preventable costs1,2
- Despite existing efforts, adherence rates lag around 50% when it is broadly recognized that 80% adherence is considered clinically important.
With a mutual commitment to innovation and teamwork, everyone in the healthcare ecosystem can enjoy the financial, safety and quality of life benefits that will result from improved medication adherence.
