Patient Medical Compliance
Medical Compliance refers to the following of advice from your doctors and nurses.
Failure to be compliant is a major cause of hospital readmission and decreases the quality of care you receive while increasing costs.
Areas of Compliance Include:
- Medications - taking your medicines as prescribed
- Laboratory - getting lab tests done as ordered
- Appointments - with doctors, nurses and other medical stakeholders, being present and on time
- Nutrition - following dietary advice and restrictions
- Exercise - following suggestions
Compliance can be increased by monitoring with feedback as needed.
