Introduction: Lack of medication adherence, a major issue in healthcare, can be costly to the healthcare system and result in poor patient outcomes. Wong et al. (2020) noted that enhanced involvement with health care professionals using the Telemedicine platform can improve a patient’s medication adherence as well as decrease the use of emergency services and hospitalizations. Telemedicine allows the healthcare provider, to contact the patient through a mobile phone or computer to provide education and reinforcement regarding medication adherence.
Purpose: The purpose of this project was to improve medication adherence and health outcomes, by piloting a quality improvement project using Telemedicine in a Cardiovascular practice. The goal of this project was to improve medication compliancein order to decrease emergency service use and hospitalizations in patients with chronic diseases.
