Our partner, DrFirst, recently published a great infographic in their post on Prescription Abandonment.  The raw numbers associated with patients not  filling prescriptions are staggering. In fact, patient medication non-adherence adds up to a $290 Billion problem annually. Additionally, beyond the detrimental financial consequence of prescription abandonment, the quality of care a provider can give is compromised.

Fortunately, DrFirst is tackling the problem of prescription abandonment head on with their innovative product, Patient Advisor.

The Patient Advisor platform provides physicians with a patient report card to gain insight into their patients’ prescription fill rates. Functionality includes changes in lab values, medication possession ratios, cross comparative analysis between fill rates and lab values, as well as other pertinent data. Early data already suggests this tool can improve medication adherence rates by more than 59%.”

Patient Advisor is free for licensed providers using the CoCENTRIXehr embedded with DrFirst’s Rcopia e-prescribing platform.
