Community Pharmacists Take on Medication Non-Adherence to Improve Patient Health
Date:6/8/2012

ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Under the leadership of its national trade association, community pharmacists are stepping up to the plate to take on the issue of medication non-adherence, a health care crisis currently adding to the nation's fiscal woes at a cost of nearly $300 billion each year.

Medication adherence, or the proper use of medication as prescribed, is an increasingly important part of the health care discussion for several reasons. There is a greater reliance on medication therapy in health care today. Plus, the U.S. population is aging and more than one half of all Americans live with at least one chronic condition.

NCPA just published a rare, special edition of its monthly magazine focused exclusively on medication adherence. The June issue of America's Pharmacist provides pharmacists with case studies, advice from adherence experts, and tools and information. The issue examines how Medicare is now using medication adherence metrics to calculate Medicare Part D plan star ratings, including Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D plans; offers an independent pharmacist's view on why mail order and adherence don't mix ("Adherence is not in the Mail"); and looks at a new adherence metric of pharmacy performance ("Equipped for Adherence").

"NCPA is proactively tackling this challenge and has launched a full-court press on the problem of non-adherence," said NCPA CEO B. Douglas Hoey, RPh, MBA. "The community pharmacist is the expert team member who can effectively identify and resolve medication issues. By identifying solutions and providing concrete actions and resources, we believe pharmacists are putting us one step closer to solving this expensive and unnecessary health care crisis."
