The burden of poor patient compliance in CVD risk and diabetes – an M2 whitepaper

In association with our partners at MEMOTEXT, Metabolic Markets has produced a whitepaper review on the clinical and economic burden of poor patient compliance in cardiovascular disease risk and diabetes.  Click HERE to access the whitepaper.

Some important data points about patient compliance in diabetes

  • Patients with medical possession ratios less than 80% had 2.5 times the risk of hospitalization for reasons either directly related to diabetes or to cardiovascular disease6
  • Increased antidiabetic MPR was the strongest predictor of decreased total annual healthcare costs, 8.6% to 28.9% decrease in annual total healthcare costs in annual total healthcare costs for every 10% increase in MPR 7
  • Each additional prescription fill by users of older (metformin or SFU) antidiabetes agents reduced hospitalization risk by 0.3%, reduced the number of hospital days by 0.04 days, and reduced Medicare spending by $71 per refill8
