Medication Adherence Solutions

Medication adherence is critical to improving healthcare outcomes worldwide. As the population ages and more individuals live with multiple chronic conditions, healthcare costs have been rising steeply as healthcare networks care for these increasingly expensive and complex patients.  In the U.S., annual avoidable system-wide costs of medication non-adherence exceed $310 billion; of this, more than $100 billion is attributable to unnecessary hospitalizations.

Better medication adherence for high-acuity, chronic disease patients can reduce unnecessary hospitalizations and complications from medication non-adherence, and potentially lower costs significantly for payers and providers.

Improved medication adherence has been clinically proven to reduce hospitalizations, ER use and doctor visits.

Patients on complex medication regimens are at a high-risk for being unable to take their medication as prescribed. We have used technology successfully in the past to help such patients manage their medications. This would be our first trial in patients with mental illness, and if successful, would open an exciting opportunity to manage these patients in more effective ways.”
