Fixing America's Other Drug Problem
This publication will raise awareness on the issue of medication adherence and provide studies, evidence and interviews with key opinion leaders addressing how to deal with this national epidemic.
The report will reach over 1.5 million readers and will be distributed at the upcoming CBI Patient Adherence forum and the CVS Caremark annual client forum—both in April.
On an individual level, medication non-adherence can lead to longer and more serious illnesses, ER visits, hospitalizations, and even death. On a national level, medication non-adherence costs nearly $300 billion annually—a significant source of waste in our health care system.
