The start of a new year is always an exciting time, and also provides an excellent opportunity to make a positive change in our lives. According to the CDC, adherence to medications for chronic conditions such congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol can reduce annual healthcare spending by as much as $7,800 per person.
Adherence to prescribed medications is incredibly important in order to help prevent serious adverse health events such as heart attacks and strokes. Remembering to take medications on a daily basis can be a real challenge for people with busy lives, but there are things you can do to make it a little easier!
