Medication Adherence Technology Combines with Patient Outreach Program to Yield Healthier Populations and Reduce Healthcare Costs
Date:10/20/2009

HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- PresentCare, a technology enabled outreach services company, announced today its new AdherencePlus(TM) solution, an innovative approach to assist the healthcare industry in addressing the critical issue of medication non-adherence.
