A new national survey shows that approximately two thirds of patients do not adhere to their prescription medication regimen. Non-adherence results in higher costs, reduced effectiveness of treatment regimens, negative health effects for patients and tens of thousands of deaths annually.
Prescriptions for a Healthy America: A Partnership for Advancing Medication Adherence brings together leading patient, physician and health care industry leaders to urge policymakers to implement near-term solutions that will help reduce health care costs and improve the lives of patients across the nation. We are working closely with elected officials and other key stakeholders to develop public policies that engage health care providers, patients and others in improving medication adherence as a critical part of improving health in America.
