Medication Adherence

While over four billion prescriptions are written each year in the United States, research has consistently shown that many patients do not take their medications according to their clinicians’ instructions.¬† At CHIBE, researchers use principles of behavioral economics, such as incentives, social comparisons and remote monitoring, to better understand how to improve medication adherence. Our findings are practical and scalable, and have been integrated into employer and insurer plans that drive health care value.
