Patient non-adherence is estimated to represent 0 billion per year in avoidable medical expenses in the United States alone. Consumers’ motivations for non-compliance are complex; up to 80% of people are intentionally not taking their prescription drugs as directed.

There is no better time for pharma companies to reflect on their patient-adherence strategies. Not only is it more cost-effective to focus on retaining, rather than acquiring, customers, but it is also an ideal way of working with other stakeholders, as patient-centric policies are implemented in healthcare systems round the world. Moreover, digital innovations are creating new opportunities for stakeholders to join forces in a concerted effort to educate patients about why taking their medications is so essential to their health.

    Key quotes

    “It is a multi-dimensional problem. And one important aspect is how patients relate to their physicians and pharmacists. I believe there are more than 40,000 articles published on adherence and more than 90 percent of these have looked almost entirely at patient behaviour alone.”

    – Colleen A McHorney, Senior Director of US Outcomes Research, Merck.

    “There is not one single barrier to adherence. That is why it is so important to work collaboratively. For consumers to change their behaviour they need to be aware of the problem. That means they have to see messages all around them—at the doctor’s office, at work, at the pharmacy.”

    – Rebecca Burkholder, vice-president of Health Policy at NCL.

    “As integrated health networks start to introduce key performance indicators for what actually happens to the patients in their care and to become more accountable, pharma companies have more incentive to move towards collaboration.”

    – Thomas Forissier, Principal, Life Sciences Strategy, CapGemini Consulting.
