Meeting the challenges of medication
non-adherence

Avella brings together the latest tools, research and resources.

Medication non-adherence is a serious, widespread issue that impacts clinical outcomes and contributes to rising healthcare costs. In fact, 20-30 percent of prescriptions written are never filled by patients and around half of all medications for chronic conditions are not taken as prescribed.1-2 As a result of this non-adherence, patients may experience preventable complications, disease progression, acute events and hospitalizations.

To better understand these challenges and work toward a solution, Avella, in partnership with the University of Arizona and the National Institute of Health (NIH), conducted a compelling research study that reveals the impact of specific medication adherence strategies. View the findings from this clinical trial in our latest video.
