Lauren Harner Explains the Impact of Health IT on Nonadherence


While health information technology can be a solution for primary medication nonadherence, it can also be burdensome, according to Lauren Harner, JD, senior manager of policy at PhRMA.

While the use of electronic prescriptions allows researchers to better track and study the lifespan of a prescription and its relation to primary nonadherence, health information technology (IT) can often be burdensome or difficult to maneuverca, says Lauren Harner, JD, senior manager of policy at PhRMA.

“I think it’s both a problem and a solution at the same time,” Ms Harner says.

She suggests that improving heath IT would not only make it easier for the prescribers and pharmacies but would allow a more comprehensive study of primary nonadherence.
