DoseCue(TM) Presents Positive Study Results at BioTech 2009

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- DoseCue, LLC announced this week that medication containers equipped with their automatic dose-time reminder devices significantly increase compliance, or adherence, according to results from a recent study.

The data, which were presented at BioTech 2009 in Philadelphia, showed that DoseCue electronic devices significantly improved patient compliance with oral-dose medications by 9.1%, without adding steps or changing the patient's dose-taking routine. In addition, overall compliance averaged 97.1% in the Study Group in Phase 2.

"This represents an important 'first'," stated DoseCue CEO, Mark Burrows. "The DoseCue trial is the first of its kind to achieve a statistically significant improvement in compliance using this one-of-a-kind, patented technology," he added, noting 95% Confidence Interval.

DoseCue's patented technology is integrated directly into manufacturers' current containers during filling and issues automatic reminder cues to patients when a medication needs to be dosed and signals when the dose has been taken. Electronics are integrated into the medication container itself, not the closure, to avoid mix-up and help differentiate the product.

The DoseCue study was conducted at a retail pharmacy to determine if patient compliance improved when oral-dose medications were dispensed in a DoseCue-equipped container. Thirty-five (35) patients were enrolled and randomized into either a Control or Study Group. All patients used an inactive container for Month 1 (Phase 1) which, unknown to participants, automatically logged date and time of open/close events, after which half were crossed-over to a container which also cued at dose time (Study Group). Remaining patients continued use of the inactive container (Control Group). Twenty-four (24) patients completed the study.

"We know the costs of non-compliance are high," said Burrows. "With DoseCue, there's no guesswork and compliance rates improve, resulting in better disease management, increased sales, and lower costs to the healthcare system."

DoseCue, LLC is a medication compliance company that integrates electronic dose-time reminder cues into manufacturers' existing factory-filled containers. These containers are clinically proven to increase compliance and remove the burden on patients to remember to take their oral-dose medication as prescribed by their physician.
