Benchmark medication adherence

HIN (Healthcare Intelligence Network) has published a report of their benchmark which compares 104 healthcare organizations on how they are improving medication adherence in their populations. Complex patients are the most common targets of medication adherence programs (75 percent of the responds). The use of multi-dose blister packs has more than quadrupled in the last 12 months, from 7 to 29 percent. Hypertension has now replaced diabetes as the condition where healthcare organizations think medication adherence programs have the greatest effect, according to 61% of the respondents.

The figure below shows that most respondents think telephonic follow-up will work to improve Medication Adherence (MA). We, at Vitaphone, think a combination of different tactics is the best approach, with a medication adherence support system as basic tool.
