Automated Phone and Mail Notices Increase Medication Adherence
Date:11/26/2012

United States each year medication nonadherence contributes to approximately 125,000 deaths and costs the health care system $290 billion.

Kaiser Permanente can deliver transformational health research in part because it has the largest private electronic health system in the world.
