Abstract

  • Approximately 5.7 million adults in the United States have heart failure.
  • 25% of individuals die within one year of diagnosis and more than 80% die within 8 years.
  • Full adherence to medications may be as low as 30% in heart failure patients.
  • Non-compliant patients are two times more likely to be readmitted to the hospital and have a three times higher mortality rate.
