Does Age Matter in Adherence?

Certainly age could be a confounding factor for many reasons – health literacy, length with a condition, co-morbidities, number of medications, tolerance for side effects – but I like this chart that the people at Vitality (aka GlowCaps) ( or just put out.

Of course, like any survey, there is sample bias so I would hesitate to extrapolate this, but I would say something like…

“for people who have and use a refill reminder device in their homes for hypertension medications, older people are more likely to be adherent.”

Of course, I’d love to know their MPR (medication possession ratio) before using the device.  Which had the higher lift?
