Medication Adherence

Two-thirds of adverse events post-discharge are due to medication-related issues. Adherence levels drop from 69% of patients filling their first prescription to 43% continuing their treatment after six months.



Understanding Behaviors that Lead to Non Adherence

  • It’s widely recognized that Medication Non-Adherence is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality, and a major contributor to increasing health care costs.
  • Medication Non-Adherence is also strongly correlated to increased readmission rates as more post-discharge adverse events are related to improper drug usage than any other cause.
  • Therefore, healthcare systems, plans, and hospitals who can better control Medication Adherence can improve a variety of outcome measures . . . and their bottom lines.
  • CareCentra’s parent company, Scriplogix, has been at the forefront of research to understand the root causes of Medication Non-Adherence, and has explored various attributes of consumer behavior to pinpoint interventions that motivate patients to make more appropriate behavioral choices, and better manage their health conditions.
  • Armed with this data, healthcare organizations can efficiently tailor their intervention to at-risk members that need additional focus and intervene with the right members to increase adherence levels.


CareCentra focuses on the behavioral elements for the non-adherence


    • Identify condition clusters among patient populations.
    • Profile patient attitude towards medication compliance/ adherence primary research.
    • Collect outcome variables that will be used to build ‘derived importance’ of the various inputs.
    • Combine clinical, demographic and behavioral dimensions to derive a Patient Risk Score using appropriate mathematical and statistical techniques.
    • Use proprietary machine learning and prediction refining algorithms to fine tune (specificity and sensitivity) behavioral segmentation models based on comparisons of projected and actual data over time.
    • Continuous feedback loop helps uncover non-compliance before it escalates into problems.
