The Growth of Adherence Packaging
Patient medication adherence is a growing concern among pharmacies. According to the Center’s for Disease Control and Prevention 23.1% of the US Population (More than 70 million people take 3 or more medications per month and 11.9% take 5 or more medications per month. Also, many hospital readmissions are due to poor medication adherence. In addition, there are significant reductions in DIR fees if you have poor adherence.
Multi-dose packaging is a good way to help your customers increase their adherence and at the same time help your business grow. They will no longer have to fill their weekly pill trays on Sunday evenings. You will be able to distinguish yourself from local competitive pharmacies that currently do not offer this as a service.
