The joint offering represents the first and only respiratory disease management service to offer tracking of both controller and rescue medications, along with clinically accurate lung function measurement and medication delivery and management services.

Cohero Health, a digital health company focused on developing connected health tools and technologies to empower respiratory patients and improve care through smart mobile devices, and ProCare Rx, a national pharmacy benefit manager and healthcare information technology company, have announced a joint respiratory disease management offering. The service combines Cohero Health’s connected health platform with ProCare Rx’s mail order pharmacy and medication management services, to increase medication adherence and prevent avoidable exacerbations.

“This partnership represents an unprecedented solution to improve patient outcomes while lowering medical and pharmacy costs,” said Cohero Health Co-Founder and COO Daniel Weinstein. “By combining Cohero’s innovative platform with ProCare’s medication management service, ProCare continues to offer its customers best in class services,” said Peter Cullen, ProCare Rx Vice President of Reporting and Analytics.

Cohero Health’s connected devices and mobile applications actively engage and empower respiratory patients by measuring lung function and tracking and improving medication adherence. The company’s proprietary platform comprises wireless medication inhaler sensors to track medication use; an FDA cleared mobile spirometer to measure lung function; mobile applications to engage patients, generate custom reminders and reward compliance; and access to custom data via HIPAA-compliant servers to support robust patient monitoring.

ProCare Rx is excited to offer its clients a technology-driven asthma program that offers immediate test results to patients, doctors, and care providers. The Cohero Health system removes self-reporting errors, increases actual medication therapy compliance, and improves patient asthma and COPD outcomes.

The joint offering represents the first and only respiratory disease management service to offer tracking of both controller and rescue medications, along with clinically accurate lung function measurement and medication delivery and management services.

Cohero Health has successfully deployed its platform at Mount Sinai Health System, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, and plans to announce more partnerships in the coming months. Early results have shown a 2.5 times increase in medication adherence over standard of care, and a 100% reduction in hospitalizations.
