The survey examining prescription adherence premiered today by Prescription Solutions.

Twenty-three % said they didn’t refill their prescriptions as instructed. Nearly a one fourth said they stopped taking the medicine since it was too expensive. Twenty-five % of respondents said they would do better at taking their prescription medicines as instructed if somebody were to check out up with them or encourage them on the way; this could add a loved one, caregiver or doctor, for example. More than a third said that they might adhere better if indeed they were supplied easier-to-understand instructions about how exactly to take their prescription medicines.In our iPhone-reverent age, the dismissal of EHR critics as Luddites can be supported by the recognition that technology we once couldn’t imagine we now can’t live without. But the assumption that EHR development will mirror the cell phone’s trajectory provides three notable flaws. The EHR is usually touted as a cost-saving, quality-promoting device, though cost-saving projections have been debunked and data on quality are combined.2 Although we’ve made improvement in individual safety only by carefully examining our errors, somehow the dangers posed by technology are anticipated to right themselves.
