Medication adherence is a huge issue. About 50% of all patients do not adhere to their prescription (cdc.gov). Adhereforhealth.org says, "At least 125,000 Americans die annually due to poor medication adherence." and "poor medication adherence results in 33% to 69% of medication-related hospital admissions in the United States, at a cost of roughly $100 billion per year."
I strongly believe that a support group for medication adherence could dramatically help these problems.
Pillable is a community for people to connect and share their experiences with medications. Watch the video to learn more.
The Walgreens API helps members stay compliant by ordering refills and provides the ability to track health improvement directly from the application.
Hoping we can build a community that makes a difference in medication adherence.
