Don’t Forget to Take Your Meds: Medication Adherence Program
September 11, 2007, Volume 54, No. 3

Have you ever forgotten to take your prescription medication?  You’re not alone—it happens to many of us. Maybe you take multiple medications and it’s hard to keep track of them all. Perhaps your doctor made changes to your medication and you have trouble remembering the new instructions. Or it could be that you find it hard to take your medication at the right times because of your busy schedule. Whatever the reason, not taking your medication as prescribed is dangerous to your health.  Your health issues can only be managed properly when you follow the healthcare regimen your doctor has set out for you. 

Penn wants to help. That’s why we’ve partnered with a company called InforMedix to provide Penn faculty and staff (and your covered family members) the opportunity to use a cutting-edge medication monitoring system at no cost to you until December 2007!  The program is available to anyone taking prescription medication, no matter what your diagnosis.  If you enroll, you’ll receive alerts when it’s time to take your medications, instructions on how to adhere to all aspects of your particular plan of care, and important educational information.

To learn more about the Medication Adherence Program and to enroll, call Penn’s Disease Management Team at (215) 898-7034.
