  • 29% of Americans take 5 or more prescribed medications

Preventing Adverse Drug Events

ADEs (adverse drug events) are causing more serious problems than ever before. Recent studies attribute 3.5 million physician office visits and 1 million emergency department visits annually due to ADEs.

ADEs are estimated to cost $21 billion dollars annually. Many are preventable. This was one of the driving forces behind the development of the MyCurrentMeds personal medication organizer.

The number of ADEs is expected to grow due to:

  • Introduction of new medicines
