Treatment Adherence Emerging as Critical Theme in Improving Quality and Cost of US Healthcare
Date:4/24/2013

will emerge as an essential component in delivering positive outcomes across these areas and beyond.  "An effective strategy that motivates patients to follow prescribed treatment or a recommended health plan will decrease medication waste and overall healthcare cost, lower readmissions, and improve patient outcomes."

Understanding Intentional Nonadherence 
According to Dr. Eliasson, healthcare companies also need to have a greater awareness of the role of intentional nonadherence within the patient population. Studies show the majority of patients who don't follow their treatments are doing so on purpose – they may not believe the treatments work or that the benefits outweigh the side effects. 

"These patients need more than reminder calls and pillbox alarms," said Dr. Eliasson. "They need specific strategies and education to change their beliefs about their illness – and to motivate them to manage their health for the long term."
