MANASQUAN NJ USA – August 25, 2008: Poor medication adherence has reached crisis proportions, leading to unnecessary disease progression and complications, reduced functioning, a lower quality of life and even death, according to a report by the National Council on Patient Information and Education (NCPIE). The NCPIE report cited that only about 50 percent of Americans typically take their medicines as prescribed. Factors that contribute to medication non-compliance include the cost of prescriptions, the impact of side effects, managing complex medication regimens and forgetfulness.
During Improving Medication Adherence: Practical Strategies in Increasing Patient Compliance, a 90-minute webinar on September 10, 2008, two industry experts will provide practical strategies to increase patient medication compliance.
Connie Commander, immediate past president of the Case Management Society of America and president, Commander’s Premier Consulting Corporation, and Thom Stambaugh, chief pharmacy officer and vice president of clinical programs and specialty pharmacy, CIGNA Pharmacy Management, will describe programs and initiatives that have increased patient compliance with medication regimes. You'll also learn the impact that compliance has had on healthcare utilization and patient satisfaction.
