Non-adherence to medications is responsible for a third to two-thirds of medication-related hospital readmissions, and 20 percent of discharged patients experience an adverse event that is largely medication related. Pharmacists may be the most effective healthcare professionals in prompting patients to take medications as prescribed.
Addressing medication adherence and reconciliation issues can improve care quality and cost efficiency within a healthcare system. The adoption of specific protocols and technologies for medication reconciliation, and counseling by pharmacists to help improve medications adherence, can significantly reduce adverse reactions and see greater outcomes.
