To the Editor In their Viewpoint, Dr Marcum and colleagues1 made several important points, including that medication nonadherence is identifiable and should be assessed regularly. Queries and patient responses about nonadherence should be included in electronic health records to facilitate treatment. We agree that identifying reasons for nonadherence will allow clinicians to deliver tailored interventions.
