Start with a High-Level Approach
Working with patients directly to improve medication adherence is vital to improving outcomes. However, it’s a bottom of the funnel approach that may not solve overarching issues such as financial barriers. That’s why looking at the top of the funnel is so important. For example; catching a generic cost-saving drug that’s about to hit that market. This is where companies like Xevant are vital.
