Industry Roundtable

Cosponsored by Pfizer

15:30 - 17:30

Patient Adherence and the Future of Innovative Drug Delivery

Patient non-adherence to medication takes a huge toll on healthcare budgets and on human health. Estimates indicate that in the United States alone, non-adherence to prescription regimens wastes roughly $300 billion in healthcare system costs and results in approximately 125,000 preventable deaths each year. Solving the adherence challenge is now as critical as finding the next new drug and will profoundly impact the future direction of drug delivery. This Industry Roundtable will discuss perspectives and provide insight on the latest innovative delivery technologies, devices, packaging, patient interactive feedback systems, and other future strategies to increase patient adherence and treatment outcomes.
