Non-adherence to prescribed medications remains a significant challenge in healthcare, leading to compromised patient health and increased healthcare expenditures. The client envisioned an all-encompassing platform with integrated smart IoT devices to help Clinical Research Organizations (CROs), physicians, and specialty pharmacies effectively manage and monitor medication adherence, enabling precise medication adherence measurement, enhancing clinical trials, fortifying data accuracy, and supporting complex medication regimens.

Key Challenges

Non-adherence to medications costs the US healthcare system $300 billion annually, resulting in 100,000 deaths and 1,000,000 hospitalizations. Europe faces a similar challenge, driving the need for accurate patient adherence measurement.

Addressing diverse patient needs and ensuring seamless integration posed key challenges in implementing the medication management platform and enhancing patient care, such as -

  • Complexities with medication adherence for patients’ dosing regimens and limited reminders for prescription refills.
  • A significant requirement for integrating smart devices for remote monitoring and virtual care services.
  • Limited interactions between patients and providers regarding medication changes, instructions, and side effects.
  • Implementation of robust data security, regulatory compliances (HIPAA), and privacy infrastructure for protecting patient data.
  • User-friendly interface and personalization factors for a flexible system accommodating diverse medication regimens and for patients.
  • Continuous improvements for providers and patients to refine platform features and optimize patient experience.
