Aprexis will continue to address non-adherence head-on with a customized intervention plan and live support services, delivered by health coaches. We not only help to wring out costs that are a major drain on the healthcare system, but also to dramatically improve the quality of life for patients.
Newton, MA (PRWEB) September 1, 2009
Aprexis Health Solutions, Inc., today announced that it has completed a management buy-out of InnovationRx, an early stage provider of medication and medical regimen adherence services, from Innovation Group (LSE:TiG).
Built by clinical and behavioral health experts and seasoned health care executives, the Aprexis Health Solutions adherence program suite is dedicated to helping patients make the difficult behavior changes necessary to improve their health. Solutions are based on proven approaches to adherence improvement, and built on well-established methodologies developed by some of the most respected thought leaders in health care.
The Aprexis assessment tools and personalized intervention plan can be delivered via a call center or through a Web platform, providing maximum flexibility. It allows Aprexis to work with any patient population--regardless of age, education level or access to the Internet. Interventions are tailored to match the needs and issues of each participant based upon their level of non-adherence and the barriers to adherence they experience. Interventions are delivered by health coaches (social worker, pharmacist or personal health counselor) trained in motivational interviewing techniques.
The company will continue to be led by Sean Teare, Nancy Bundek, Ph.D., and Robert Squire. "Non-adherence leads to health problems, emergency room visits and hospitalizations, and causes an economic ripple effect that leads to $300 billion in related healthcare costs," said Sean Teare, president of Aprexis. "Aprexis will continue to address non-adherence head-on with a customized intervention plan and live support services, delivered by health coaches. We not only help to wring out costs that are a major drain on the healthcare system, but also to dramatically improve the quality of life for patients."
Aprexis' solutions can work for any company in the health care space who has a financial interest in improving patient adherence. For additional information on Aprexis, please visit: http://www.aprexis.com.
