Medication adherence is defined as the interactive, voluntary, and cooperative participation of the patient in a mutually acceptable course of action to create a therapeutic effect. This concept suggests that the patient has a choice and that patients and healthcare professionals jointly agree upon the treatment plan and goals. Medication adherence often refers to a patient’s ability to continue taking prescribed medication and take their meds as directed. Thus, adherence and persistence are the key principles describing medication adherence behavior. Although theoretically identical, persistence describes the duration of drug therapy overall, and adherence refers to the degree of medication use during therapy.

Market Driver

Due to the emerging evidence that medication nonadherence is common, linked to unfavorable outcomes, and related to greater healthcare expenditures, doctors, healthcare systems, and other stakeholders are increasingly concerned about medication adherence. As the global population ages and people take more medications to manage chronic ailments, nonadherence is projected to increase. Long-term medication adherence is reinforced by the rise of performance metrics that recognize quality based on achieving treatment goals like blood pressure and low-density lipoprotein levels after hospitalization for acute myocardial infarction.

The accomplishment of extended therapeutic and outcome goals necessitates collaboration with patients, in contrast to other quality indicators that are more directly controlled by healthcare systems and providers of care. Because of the growing evidence that the rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, etc., is a major factor in the global smart healthcare expansion, medication adherence is becoming a greater priority for clinicians, healthcare systems, and other stakeholders. MHealth has grown significantly in recent years due to increased smartphone usage and the industry’s revolutionary digitization. The increased usage of mHealth and government initiatives to digitize healthcare systems are expected to enhance the demand for intelligent healthcare solutions. The healthcare or regulatory process must be completely connected to revamp the treatment process and improve patient happiness. This allows for a speedy and accurate patient experience. These advancements have made it possible for medication adherence to increase even more.
