Digital health tools, pharmaceuticals and medical devices are converging in new wireless technologies designed to remotely monitor patient medication-taking behavior and to measure physiological responses to some drugs. Companies say these connected devices and services will help improve medication adherence and patient outcomes, and will save the health care system billions of dollars by preventing unnecessary doctor's visits and hospital admissions.
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.
This Month's Profile Groups: Making The Business Of Drug Adherence An Easier Pill To Swallow, features profiles of HealthPrize Technologies, Pill Jogger, RxAnte and SentiCare. New Access Devices Create Gateway To Interventional Structural Heart Disease features profiles of Apica Cardiovascular, Entourage Medical and Inseal Medical. Plus these Start-Ups Across Health Care: CanDiag, CoolSpine, Genkyotex, MGI Medical, MitrAssist Medical, SA Ignite, Savara Pharmaceuticals and StnDrd Infusion.
HealthPrize Technologies LLC, a company developing Internet and mobile-based gaming and loyalty rewards applications, hopes to teach the industry how to motivate reluctant patients to take their medicine. By making behavioral psychology part of the prescription, the start-up thinks that pharmaceutical companies, payors and providers will reward it for boosting adherence rates.
