SEA GIRT, NJ, USA, June 10, 2013 --- More than half of programs to improve medication adherence zero in on transitions in care --- up from 37 percent in 2012, as a new HINfographic from the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN) illustrates.
Meds misunderstandings frequently occur as patients move from one care site to another. Medication Adherence: Getting America to Take Its Medicine illustrates a wealth of metrics on current programs based on responses from more than 100 healthcare companies to HIN's third annual survey on Medication Adherence conducted in January 2013.

QUOTE ATTRIBUTABLE TO MELANIE MATTHEWS, HIN EXECUTIVE VP AND COO:
"The cost of medication non-adherence is great: in 2009, the New England Healthcare Institute blamed medication non-adherence for $290 billion in 'otherwise avoidable medical spending' in the United States alone each year. This HINfographic offers a succinct look at what's working industry-wide to boost medication adherence, including the growing role of the community pharmacist."
