Infographic – Ways to address the non-adherence problem!

Non-adherence to medication is a global problem; in the US, about 125.000 deaths are linked to medication non-adherence.

Specialists suggest three ways to address this problem:

  1. Offer immediate rewards
  2. Educate people
  3. Engage people

Additional remarks to optimize adherence:

  • Pre-packaged medication for each intake moment
  • Notify people when they forget to take their medication

The PICO; Medication Adherence Support System, packs all these optimizations together. Which ways do you think are viable to improve medication adherence? Please comment below.
