“Medication non-adherence places a significant cost burden on healthcare systems, so healthcare organizations are seeking EMR-integrated solutions to address the problem. DoseSmart is now one of the first platforms on the Epic App Orchard to provide this feature.”
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) August 09, 2018
Striving to improve healthcare quality and outcomes by simplifying medication adherence monitoring with Smart-pill bottle and mobile applications, DoseSmart announced today the availability of its medication management platform: DoseSmart® FHIR in the App Orchard.
The DoseSmart medication management and medication adherence platform helps hospitals and health systems easily implement and seamlessly integrate patient medication adherence data.
DoseSmart is a physician-driven medication adherence platform that integrates EHR data and pre-populates the patient’s portion of the DoseSmart platform with a few touches of a button directly from the clinicians’ workflow. This reduces the number of steps needed by both the patient and providers to set up medication adherence programs and limits mistakes from patients who self-enter their medications.
“Ability to initiate medication adherence monitoring program directly from Epic, can help to significantly simplify the care for patients with complex medications regiments. Additionally, for the clinicians that are involved in the research projects, this provides a unique opportunity not only to access the adherence data for a specific patient without leaving the EMR, but to have additional information about medications handling, like humidity and temperature, all through the DoseSmart’s portal integrated directly with Epic. Doctors can now have adherence data at their fingertips, within a few seconds, at the point of care,” said Dr. Solad Digital Health expert member of DoseSmart advisory board.
“Medication non-adherence places a significant cost burden on healthcare systems, so healthcare organizations are seeking EMR-integrated solutions to address the problem. DoseSmart is now one of the first platforms on the Epic App Orchard to provide this feature,” says David MacVittie, CEO of DoseSmart.
The platform simplifies medication adherence by allowing clinicians to import medications directly into the DoseSmart platform, thereby easing patients’ enrollment and providing a wide range of reminder options [text message, email, phone call and third party notifications]. After the enrollment, patients can record medication intake with a simple touch of a button on their smartphone, or the intake information can be recorded automatically if they use the DoseSmart Smart-pill bottle.
DoseSmart is the better way to ensure that patients take their pills on time, every time. DoseSmart Inc.’s patented technology provides a simple three-part solution to a complex problem of medication non-adherence. First, an easy-to-use Smartphone application allows either the patient or medical professional to create a treatment plan and set reminders for time, day and dosage of medications. Second, the optional Smart-pill bottle stores, dispenses and tracks medications as well as sends adherence data to the DoseSmart cloud. Third, the DoseSmart platform provides data analytics and visualization solutions for clinical care teams to support clinical or research use.
