BigNews.Biz - Apr 27,2012 - New Thinking in Patient Adherence
Patient non-adherence is estimated to represent $290 billion per year in avoidable medical expenses in the United States alone. Consumers’ motivations for non-compliance are complex; up to 80% of people are intentionally not taking their prescription drugs as directed. http://www.bharatbook.com/market-research-reports/healthcare-market-research-report/new-thinking-in-patient-adherence.html
