Complex patients remain the top targets of programs to improve medication adherence (MA), but more than half now also zero in on MA levels during transitions in care up from 37 percent in 2012. Educating patients and caregivers on proper use of medications following a health event helps to curb avoidable hospital readmissions and ER visits.
This HINfographic on Medication Adherence illustrates a wealth of data on current programs, including the most likely targets of MA programs, the most common barriers to medication compliance, the most influential tools, and the conditions that respond most favorably to efforts to improve MA.
The information in this infographic is derived from responses to the third annual 2013 Medication Adherence survey conducted by the Healthcare Intelligence Network.
