Reducing avoidable hospitalizations and ED visits1

As the population ages and more individuals live with multiple chronic conditions, healthcare costs have risen steeply while healthcare networks struggle to care for these increasingly expensive and complex patients.

 

Research has shown that medication adherence can result in reduced hospitalization, emergency department use and doctor visits.2 Unfortunately, many potential obstacles prevent patients from realizing the expected benefit of prescribed drugs.

 

Better medication adherence for high-acuity, chronic disease patients can reduce unnecessary hospitalizations and complications from medication non-adherence, and potentially lower costs significantly for payers and providers.
