Patients are struggling to take their prescription medications correctly. Failure to adhere to prescribed drug therapies has reached a large enough scale that the Center for Disease Control (CDC) now considers it to be an epidemic. Considered to be a national health crisis, improper prescription drug usage leads to hundreds of thousands of avoidable injuries and deaths each year. There is an additional layer to this problem that, although not as high profile, is just as impactful… both short and long-term drug therapies are being needlessly abandoned because patients are not utilizing them correctly. This is actively costing the healthcare industry millions each year.

  • Over 4 billion prescriptions are written each year
  • The average American fills approximately 13 prescriptions each year
  • 46% of adults take at least 1 prescription

  • Americans take an average of 4 prescription medications each day
  • 16% of U.S. hospital admissions are related to adverse reactions to prescription drugs
  • As high as 20% of prescriptions are never filled
  • As high as 50% of prescriptions are taken improperly
  • Over 600,000 emergency room visits each year due to improper prescription drug usage
  • Over 125,000 deaths each year due to improper prescription drug usage
