EnvoyHealth, CMT Piloting Adherence Technology Program
Jul 28, 2017
FLINT, Mich. — July 28, 2017 — EnvoyHealth, a Diplomat company, partners with Compliance Meds Technologies to pilot medication adherence program.
EnvoyHealth, a Diplomat company, has partnered with Compliance Meds Technologies (CMT) to pilot a program for CleverCap LITE, a technology designed to improve patient medication adherence.
CMT strives to deliver innovative health technology solutions and services that help track and improve patients’ medication adherence.
CleverCap LITE offers medication monitoring and control for patients and providers. The compact, high-tech bottle cover:
- Records date and time of bottle access
- Records if a medication bottle isn’t properly reclosed
- Works with bottles or liquid vials
- Features visual and audio reminders, as well as a silent option
“One of the largest problems in health care is nonadherence to prescription medication,” said Jenny Cretu, senior vice president of pharma services and marketing. “Piloting technologies like CleverCap is key to long-term patient engagement and can help us understand crucial data and improve patient care and outcomes.”
According to the American Heart Association, medication nonadherence takes the lives of 125,000 Americans annually and costs the U.S. health care system nearly $300 billion per year in doctor visits, emergency department visits, and hospitalizations.
Not adhering to a medication regimen with respect to timing, dosage, and/or duration can interfere with a patient’s ability to treat and manage a disease, leading to a greater risk for complications and a lower quality of life.
“We are very excited about the partnership with Diplomat and EnvoyHealth,” said Moses Zonana, founder and CEO of CMT. “Our platform and engagement technology provides an ideal foundation for integrated medication management programs; our combined strengths set a new standard for outpatient medication management. With CMT, patients can be engaged when necessary, providing intelligent touchpoints and a better allocation of resources.”
