Medication Adherence Action Kit

Almost 50% of Americans take at least one prescription drug. Only half of these patients take their medication correctly and many patients who receive drug prescriptions fail to fill them. Good medication adherence can prevent strokes, heart attacks, renal failure and other complications from poorly controlled diseases. Poor adherence, especially in patients with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and heart disease, is associated with increased risk of hospitalization and death.
