A recent study conducted by CVS, together with Harvard Medical and Brigham & Women’s Hospital highlights medication adherence for four common diseases: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and depression in 50 states.
In this study they layout the factors that undermine medication non-adherence among patients and will help identify solutions to health care professionals for medication non-adherence.
Non-adherence to every day medications has been seen as a major public health problem. Non-adherence can lead to worsening health which can increase overall health care costs. Through this research study it is hoped that what is learned will help with health care, and will also help health care professionals understand patient behavior and patient non-compliance.
