IMPROVE PATIENT EXPERIENCE WHEN ADMINISTERING MEDS

Difficulty swallowing medications can lead to non-adherence and complications, both in and out of the hospital


Imagine the potential impact on hospital readmissions:

  • In a national survey, 14% of adults who reported difficulty swallowing pills said they had delayed taking a dose of their medication and 8% had skipped a dose completely.

  • Poor medication adherence results in 33% to 69% of medication-related U.S. hospital admissions at an estimated cost of $100 billion annually.

 

Introduce patients to Phazix    in the hospital and encourage them to continue using it after they leave.
