Medication adherence is a big problem, and recent studies are bringing the actual costs and causes into sharper focus. At the same time, health care reforms such as electronic health records and prescriptions, as well as new incentives from the US government, have encouraged investors to tackle solutions to the problem. Questions remain about the impact of these reforms, but the companies profiled in this issue, HealthPrize Technologies, PillJogger, RxAnte and SentiCare, see an evolving climate in which their medication adherence technology solutions can turn into profitable businesses.
