Contagion Design Challenge: How to Make Mail Order Pharmacy Refills "Fun?"

The researchers found that 84.7 percent of patients who received their medications by mail at least two-thirds of the time stuck to their physician-prescribed regimen, compared with 76.9 percent of those who picked up their medications at traditional "brick-and-mortar" Kaiser Permanente pharmacies.

"The results were consistent for all three classes of medication, including medications to control diabetes, and high cholesterol," said co-investigator Julie A. Schmittdiel, Ph.D., a research scientist with the Kaiser Permanente research division.

From: "Use of mail-order pharmacies use could improve patients' medication adherence."

This is a pretty interesting study in terms of adherence...
