In the midst of a busy day, it is common to forget to ask questions about a patient’s prescriptions and whether they are adhering to their treatment plan. Identifying and correcting medication nonadherence is critical for patient health and safety as well as for the practice to deliver the most effective care possible. Encouraging adherence will improve the health of patients and reduce overall healthcare costs.
