Technology’s Impact on Access, Adherence and Affordability of Medications
For many, 2020 was a year in which life’s essentials — medications included — took on a higher value and became more difficult to obtain. As a society, we faced the threat of COVID-19, a global pandemic that exposed vulnerabilities in healthcare as it spread. Lives have been upended, safety put at risk and the changes can be overwhelming. Patients need reliable paths to medication access, and tech-enabled solutions can help while also improving processes for providers, pharmacists and payers.
