Willowglade Technologies Introduces Oral Oncolytic Adherence Management Solution

Comprehensive management of oral cancer therapies drives improved patient outcomes.

As chemotherapy treatment regimens are increasingly administered in the form of oral drugs, practices and patients are currently facing new challenges to ensure safety, monitoring, and adherence to new regimens.

Studies have shown that 80% of patients on oral oncolytics have less than optimal adherence to their treatment regimens and that medication adherence generally decreases over time, even with patients that are considered low risk for noncompliance. (1)

Considering the critical nature of chemotherapy treatment as it relates to successful patient outcomes, new technologies are required to assist patients in managing their medications, reporting side effects and collecting data that can be used to better create an ongoing comprehensive overview of an individual patient situation – driving improved medication adherence and overall patient outcomes.

Willowglade Technologies is addressing this issue head on by actively engaging the patients via the Health OrchestratorTM and the Personal Health NavigatorTM mobile application. Willowglades’ comprehensive platform is built on four pillars of patient involvement, namely Collaboration, Communication, Education and Adherence.

“As studies have shown, building and managing a comprehensive view of the patient is critical to medication adherence programs (2)” said John Papandrea, CEO and President of Willowglade Technologies. “Risk stratification strategies, managing patient reported outcomes (PROs), proving patient specific educational content and monitoring medication usage provides the broad spectrum of functions required for the implementation of a successful and comprehensive adherence program” he said.

The Willowglade Technologies platform was specifically designed with the intent of “involving” the patient in their own care. By taking this unique approach, the patient is an active member of their own “care team” - contributing data and patient reporting outcomes. As such, the patient feels they contribute much more on their road to recovery, will adhere to medication regimens more closely and ultimately drive superior outcomes for themselves as well with their surrounding clinical team.

This announcement is made during the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) conference to be held in Chicago, June 2-6, 2017. To learn more about Willowglade Technologies contact us at info(at)willowgladetechnologies.com
