Text messaging increases medication adherence

Patients who received text message reminders to take their medicine significantly improved their medication adherence, according to a new study.

Published in Clinical Therapeutics, the report involved 580 people and found 85 per cent of those receiving the alerts followed their oral medicine regimen, while among those that didn't receive the reminders, 77 per cent took their treatment as prescribed.
