Cash rewards keep people on their medications

• Reuters

Weekly rewards of as little as $5 could keep people on track with their medications, says a new study.

"It helps the patient understand that we are serious about helping them get treated," said Dr. Deb Sodt, who leads the Minnesota Department of Health Tuberculosis Prevention & Control Program and was not involved in the new work.

Recent studies suggest that fewer than half of people don't follow doctors' medication orders, even for life-threatening conditions.
