Patients need to understand the whys and hows of their medications

When patients don’t adhere to recommended treatments, studies show it can lead to a reduction in their quality of life while contributing to the progression of their condition. In the U.S., for example, poor medication adherence has been linked to approximately 125,000 deaths per year and an estimated healthcare cost of $100 billion annually.1
