Patient Adherence, or the extent to which a patient abides by their treatment regime, is a continuing issue globally and non-adherence is costing us all dear. However for all the talk about adherence programmes, better patient engagement and education, have you ever stopped to think about just how much non-adherence really costs?
In anticipation for 2012 Patient Summit USA, we have been giving this issue a great deal of thought, and decided it was time to illustrate just how much of a pressing issue non-adherence is becoming. As a result, our creative-types have come up with an infographic which I think you’ll find puts the issues into stark perspective.
As you’ll see, non-adherence remains a costly issue within healthcare, and if we can do anything to ensure it gets the attention, and the resources it deserves, we will.
