The “silent killer” that impacts every ambulatory care practice is medication non-adherence. Today, medication non-adherence is estimated to cause 125,000 preventable deaths every year and costs all of us $300 billion.

Many pharmacies have now implemented medication synchronization or med sync programs to proactively address medication adherence. While some have called med sync a “golden ticket,” research is clearly needed.
