Drug monitoring information improves regimen adherence, Carnegie Mellon researchers say
April 29, 2014
In a 10-month study in the homes of older adults with chronic health problems, Carnegie Mellon University researchers found that adherence to a medication regimen improved when people had ready access to a digital display of their medication-taking record. These people were more likely to take the correct medication promptly and at the same time of day than people who didn't receive the ongoing feedback.
