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. As a result of this non-adherence, patients may experience preventable complications, disease progression, acute events and hospitalizations.

That's why we've developed a variety of solutions to address key factors that contribute to non-adherence, including: forgetfulness, health literacy, adverse effects and cost. We offer extensive counseling to patients in order to identify and overcome any barriers to adherence. Our dedicated Prior Authorization and Funding teams work to speed the approval process of medications and secure financial assistance for our patients.
