Medication forgetfulness happens to others. Really ?
You know your parents have a chronic condition, like hypertension or diabetes, and you also know that in most developed countries there are very efficient drugs that will keep things under control. We are all optimistic and we naturally to think that everybody takes all the drugs they are prescribed; but that's not true! Most studies show that your parents are probably missing half of their pills.
Obviously, when patients miss a pill they don't die and therefore, you might argue that the blood pressure graph above is an exaggeration. And I actually agree that it is the worst case scenario. Nevertheless we can say that missing medication puts patients in a danger zone that increases their risk of a critical accident and that risk is totally unacceptable and avoidable with something as simple as installing an iPhone app !
