It has been estimated that, of the ~4 billion annual prescriptions filled by the retailers in the US, approximately 50% are not taken by patients in accordance to physicians' instructions. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), failure to comply to prescribed treatment regimens has been identified as the cause of 125,000 premature deaths, up to 69% of all re-hospitalizations, and results in approximately USD 100-300 billion worth of avoidable annual healthcare spending. Studies have demonstrated that every one percent improvement in medication adherence can help the US healthcare industry save up to USD 2 billion, resulting in an increase in pharmaceutical revenues by ~USD 4 billion.
