Mail-Order May Help People Stick to Med Regimens

A new study shows that 84.7% of people who order their medications by mail stick to their routines, whereas local pharmacy purchases only saw a 76.9% adherence rate.

"Our findings indicate that mail-order pharmacies streamline the medication acquisition process, which is associated with better medication adherence," said lead researcher Dr. O. Kenrik Duru.
