Lower costs seen for MI patients who fully comply with treatments

ACC CV Quality SmartBrief | Aug 18, 2016

Patients who had myocardial infarction but fully complied with guideline-recommended treatments had fewer major adverse cardiovascular events and lower health costs, compared with those who were nonadherent or partially adherent, researchers reported in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. The study showed patients had to adhere to their treatment plan more than 80% of the time to achieve the full benefit. Medscape (free registration) (08/17)
