Westfield, NJ (PRWEB) September 28, 2010
iReminder, a healthcare technology company focused on increasing medication and treatment compliance, has been invited to participate in the 2010 Connected Health Symposium. Amy J. Yoffie, CEO, will discuss how automated, yet still personalized communications help patients improve their health and wellness, manage chronic conditions, and support independent aging – all topics of the Symposium in Boston on October 21 - 22, 2010.
Connected Health focuses on the ways technology can be used to deliver quality care outside of traditional medical settings. In addition to health care technology firms, speakers at this Symposium represent pharmaceutical manufacturers, payers and government agencies. Presenters also include academic researchers and VCs.
Sponsors of Compliance for Life® include pharmaceutical companies, pharmacies, payers and hospitals who license this technology and distribute it to physicians or directly to patients. iReminder’s technology is designed to support busy, active patients with chronic diseases – which affect over 130 million Americans and account for 70% of deaths at an annual cost of $1.3 trillion – as well as elderly patients enrolled in aging-in-place programs. It empowers patients by letting them decide where and when they want to be reminded to take their medication, go to the doctor, get a lab test and refill their prescriptions.
Compliance for Life delivers automated – yet relevant and personalized – messages to patients, including reminders, regimen instructions, educational information and motivational messages by phone SMS text and email. Medical providers can quickly identify patients who are most at risk for non-compliance and intervene to improve outcomes.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to participate in this important event and to be recognized as a leader in technology for medication compliance,” said Amy J. Yoffie, CEO at iReminder. “Our focus is to make it simple for all healthcare stakeholders to work collaboratively with patients to manage their health. Pharmacists, for example, can now provide Medication Therapy Management (MTM) support with Compliance for Life’s personal messaging program and pharmaceutical companies can automate Risk Evaluation Mitigation Strategies (REMS) programs.”
