It’s no secret that Medicare, and private payers, closely monitor health care providers’ readmission rates. If Medicare determines a given health care system has too many readmissions, it can reduce all of that system’s payments by up to 3%. Private payer penalties can be even more severe.
At the same time, statistical evidence indicates that up to 70% of all preventable readmissions are due to patient prescription non-compliance. What's more, based on the analytics generated by ProxsysRx’s proprietary software, readmissions from prescription non-compliance are often significantly more expensive to health care providers than other readmissions.
Research also indicates that the leading causes of medication non-compliance are Premature Cessation, Prohibitive Medication Costs and Confusion / Lack Of Information.
