Abstract

Adherence in medicine is a measure of how well a patient follows their treatment. Not following the medication plan is actually a major issue as it was underlined in the World Health Organization's reports (http://www.who.int/chp/knowledge/publications/adherencefullreport.pdf). They indicated that, in developed countries, only about 50% of patients with chronic diseases correctly follow their treatments. This severely compromises the efficiency of long-term therapy and increases the cost of health services.
