The main objective of the A1 Action Group on prescription and adherence to medical plans is to improve the quality of life and health outcomes of older people living with chronic conditions by delivering tangible adherence approaches for patients in various disease areas. Its action is based on a holistic approach, including enhanced self-care, personalised care, better adequacy of treatment and increased adherence to safe and effective care plans. Innovative organisational, technical and medical practices for better adherence can lead to more efficient use of resources and the efficiency of health interventions. Ultimately, it can improve the health of patients, their quality of life, reduce the worsening of the disease and avoid unnecessary hospitalisations.
This Action Group brings together partners representing more than 100 multi-stakeholder commitments from national and regional administrations, local authorities, research centres, academia, industry (including SMEs) and advocacy organisations from across the EU.
