CVS/pharmacy Helping Consumers with Challenge of Filling Prescriptions on Time
Date:8/13/2009

if they feel better.
  • Some consumers (21%) admit to being careless about taking their medications as prescribed.
  • Younger consumers (ages 20 to 34) are more likely than others to report not taking their medications.
  • "It is very important for patients to maintain their medication regimen. Skipping medications for any reason can be risky and patients may end up compromising their health and having more costs in the long run. Patients should talk to their pharmacist about the best way to manage prescriptions, and simple tools like ReadyFill(R) can help," said Papatya Tankut, Vice President of Pharmacy Professional Services for CVS Caremark.

    Medication non-adherence is a significant, often unrecognized risk factor that can contribute to poor health outcomes and escalate health care costs. In fact, non-adherence takes an economic toll on U.S. national health care spending, costing an estimated $177 billion a year.

    Survey methodology

    CVS Caremark commissioned a study in April of 2009 among consumers in order to gain insight on behaviors, attitudes, and beliefs surrounding health care in general and prescription usage. An internet based study was conducted among 2,000 consumers who report taking at least one maintenance medication. The study was conducted by Cooper Research, Inc, a health care research company based in Cincinnati, Ohio.
