Date:10/27/2009

ents. These efforts also must support providers in effectively communicating the importance of following treatment plans, and in providing medication support services to patients and caregivers.

Health Services Research There is a need for additional research on medication adherence, including a focus on the effectiveness of a wider range of interventions to improve adherence, as well as an analysis of the diverse factors, behaviors, costs and consequences related to poor adherence.

"Medical adherence is a problem that should unite all providers, elected officials, pharmacists, insurers and pharmaceutical companies," said Jack Lewin, CEO of the American College of Cardiology. "Fifty percent of patients with heart disease are not taking their potentially life-saving medications, but it is our hope that recommendations like these will go a long way toward addressing this serious problem."
