Assembly Member Bonilla Introduces Bill to Improve Medication Adherence
Assemblywoman Susan A. Bonilla announced yesterday that she has partnered with the California Pharmacists Association and the California Healthcare Institute to introduce legislation that improves the process for medical patients to obtain their prescription drugs and follow their doctor's instructions on taking their medications.
"Poor medication adherence costs the US health system $290 billion dollars in other health care expenditures, such as emergency room visits and unnecessary physician office visits," said Jon Roth, Chief Executive Officer for the California Pharmacists Association. "Assemblymember Bonilla's legislation will go a long way to improving medication adherence by allowing patients to receive their medication in a way that is most convenient to them and all those medications to be synchronized with all their other drugs, resulting in the best chance for a patient to successfully complete all of their prescriptions."
