What we are trying to achieve and why?

Medication nonadherence is a major cause of morbidity, especially in elderly patients. Approximately 10% of hospitalizations may be a result of medication nonadherence. It is not only an individual patient’s health problem, but also contributes up to $300 billion of avoidable healthcare costs in the United States (US) and up to 30% of wasteful spending.

Pharmacies can help overcome this public health concern by providing MTM, multimed packaging, medication synchronization, and utilizing the ABM. This app is designed to address some of these solutions. Below are some graphs which show the distribution of patients not adhering to medication on the basis of various factors.

Impact from various Ethnic groups

This graph shows the contribution of various ethnic groups towards medical inadherence. Graph is scaled down to represent the number of patients who didn't adhered to the medication out of every 100 patients of that ethinicity.

Which ages contribute the most?

This graph compares the number of people who dropped their medication before time and thir ages. The graph clearly shows that young-aged people (24-40 years) are highest contributors. This can be attributed to the fast paced lifestyle and negligence towards health of youth.

Which cities are highest contributors

As the graph shows, Boston surprisingly has the highest number of medical defaulters, with no one even near it.

Gender Factor

This doughnut chart shows the distribution of defaulters on basis of gender. The readings show that women have a higher rate of leaving medication before the prescribed time as compared to men.
