"Drugs don’t work in patients that don't take them."
Dr. Koop, former surgeon General of the United States

The Need

  • Nearly 1 in 2 Americans (133 million) have a chronic condition1
  • Four in five health care dollars (78%) are spent on behalf of people with chronic conditions2
  • Two thirds of medicated patients do not take their medication or dosage correctly, resulting in deterioration and hospitalization
  • Patients lack an efficient and user friendly support system for medication management and monitoring
  • Prescription medication is the most cost effective means of disease treatment and control
"Increasing the effectiveness of adherence interventions may have a far greater impact on the health of the population than any improvement in specific medical treatments."
World Health Organization 2003
