So we know that non-compliance has enormous impacts on healthcare in both patient quality of life and unnecessary costs to an already overburdened healthcare system. There are direct and indirect ramifications of patient non-compliance that seep into various facets of everyday life – including the ability of patients, especially those affected by chronic diseases, to perform at their jobs. If you think about it, it makes sense – a person who isn’t compliant with their Diabetes treatment and lifestyle won’t be able to work in the same manner as someone who is. This affects both job performance as well as job attendance.
