Looking specifically at lack of medication adherence in the U.S., a recent survey reported that nearly three out of every four American consumers report not always taking their prescription medicine as directed. Commissioned by the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA), this survey also found a major disconnect between consumers’ beliefs and their behaviors when it comes to taking medicines correctly, that might be helped by prescription med management systems. Some of the findings of the survey include:
Adherence rates are typically higher in patients with acute conditions, as compared to those with chronic conditions, with adherence dropping most dramatically after the first six months of therapy. The problem is especially grave for such patients with chronic conditions requiring long-term or lifelong therapy, because poor medication adherence leads to unnecessary disease progression, disease complications, reduced functional abilities, a lower quality of life, and premature death. Lack of med management also increases the risk of developing a resistance to needed therapies (e.g., with antibiotic therapy), more intense relapses, and withdrawal (e.g., with thyroid hormone replacement therapy)and rebound effects (e.g., with hypertension and depression therapy) when medication is interrupted. Because of this impact, adherence has been called “the key mediator between medical practice and patient outcomes.”
Although the challenge of poor medication adherence has been discussed and debated for at least three decades, these problems have generally been overlooked as a major health care priority. Compounding the situation, adherence problems have been exacerbated by the fragmented approach by which hospitals, health care providers, and other parts of the health delivery system intervene with patients and caregivers to encourage adherence.
