CVS Caremark Study Finds Patients with Complex Therapies Struggle to Stay Adherent to their Medications

Choudhry, M.D., Ph.D., of Harvard and Brigham and Women's Hospital, and the lead author of the study.  "While the treatment of chronic disease is extremely complex, our results clearly demonstrate filling prescriptions at many different pharmacies on many different occasions makes it even harder for these patients to take their medicine as directed by their doctors."  

"Some people might look at these results and say it is not surprising that patients who ha
