Medication doesn’t help much if you don’t take it.
Medication adherence refers to patients taking the medication prescribed by their healthcare providers at the correct dosage and timing.
Medication nonadherence is an important public health concern, affecting health outcomes and overall healthcare costs for virtually all chronic diseases. Half of all patients do not take their medications as prescribed, and more than one in five new prescriptions go unfilled.
The total potential savings from medication adherence and related disease management could be $300 billion annually in the U.S. alone, which is 13% of healthcare spending.
The growth of the medication adherence systems market is being driven by several factors: the growing elderly population, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, the widespread adoption of smartphones and technological advancements in life sciences, according to the BCC report, Medication Adherence: Systems, Technologies and Global Markets.
