The importance of
Medication compliance is whether or not a patient takes a medication as prescribed. It is incredibly important for the effective implementation of a treatment plan, but sometimes there are major barriers associated with medication compliance. This is especially profound in the elderly population, who are the population most likely to have multiple chronic illnesses. Most of these can be related to two major issues: complicated instructions and a lack of awareness on scheduling.
The key of medication management.
There are a number of aspects to medication management, all of which are focused on making sure that medications are used appropriately. Keeping track of all of the medications currently in use by a patient is an important part. This can include creating databases describing medications, their dosages, and how they are being used. We believe that care providers are desperately needed in these processes to confirm that patients are getting their medications on time and in the correct doses.
