8 Reasons Why Your Community Should be Offering Medication Management Services

As the senior population in America grows, the need for medication management services also
increases. Medication management is a service that increases the individual’s compliance with taking the right medication at the right time as prescribed by their doctor. Non-adherence to proper medication administration results in negative outcomes, including not achieving health care goals, an increase in medication side effects and an increase in emergency room visits and hospitalizations. It is estimated that 50% of patients in the U.S. do not take their medication correctly. 1 Older adults tend to take more medications because of an increase in the number of illnesses. As the number of medications a person takes increases, so does the risk factor for adverse drug reactions, non-adherence, financial
burden, drug-drug interactions and worse outcomes.
