Reducing medication non-adherence, one patient at a time

The Envolve family of companies has long focused on the importance of preventing health issues before they begin. Adhering to prescription medication is a vital part of preventive health and managing chronic conditions.

However, nearly 50% of patients do not take their medications as prescribed.1 As a result, pharmaceutical companies lose an estimated $188 billion annually in revenues.2

Confused
Patients may feel that adhering to their prescribed medication is confusing, unnecessary, or inconvenient. No matter the reason, we offer comprehensive engagement and education through our targeted medication adherence program. In this program, our experts offer support to our members over the phone by promoting the safe and appropriate use of medications. This leads to more consistent use of medications, as members learn to take active roles in their own care plans and fill their prescriptions regularly. And when patients are using their medications correctly, you have the opportunity to receive accurate health outcomes data about what is working and what to change. This leads not only to improved results for patients, but also to an improved standing for your company in the pharmaceutical industry.

Our experience in managing diseases and chronic conditions has given us insight into what works and what doesn’t when it comes to medication adherence. And by targeting conditions such as hepatitis C, high-risk pregnancy, and HIV—such compliance can be life-saving.
