EnrichMap Announces New Program To Reduce Medical Patient Noncompliance And Offers Healthcare Organizations A Limited Trial Test Opportunity

Medical patient noncompliance is a major healthcare issue. The Emap typology provides a new patient assessment program to determine the compliance personality of individuals and then targeted guidance for how to best communicate healthcare information to each of the six compliance Profiles

(PRWEB) October 8, 2008 -- [EnrichMap __title__ Click this link.] announces new program to reduce medical [patient noncompliance __title__ Click this link.]and offers healthcare organizations a limited trial test opportunity.

EnrichMap has developed a new methodology to identify the [medical compliance personality] of individual patients and then employ a more targeted, personalized approach to increasing compliance. EnrichMap is seeking organizations in the healthcare industry to conduct demonstration tests of the Emap Profile to predict and manage patient compliance. The trial programs are available for a limited time at no cost to the clients.

The Emap research indicates that each person has a core compliance personality which shapes their attitudes and behavior in adhering to healthcare regimens. The Emap Profile identifies six Compliance Personality Groups, each of which can now be addressed with a targeted approach to healthcare communications and treatment styles that help to enlist the patient to be more responsive and participatory in their own healthcare program.

Clinical trial researchers can use Emap to determine the likelihood of a subject completing a trial and following a defined protocol. Healthcare providers and insurance companies can suggest protocols, communications and treatment styles that better match the nature of the patient, to increase the likelihood of achieving desired outcomes and reduce costs.

Dr. Allan Showalter and several colleagues, after studying noncompliance for many years in their own practices, founded EnrichMap to create a program dedicated to improving patient compliance. According to Dr. Showalter, "The opposite of treatment [adherence] is not treatment nonadherence. The opposite of treatment adherence is treatment failure. Despite an age-old awareness of healthcare noncompliance, we've made little notable progress in understanding the basic elements of patient noncompliance. The guiding principle of the Emap Profile is that to address noncompliance in the most practical manner, it is far more effective and efficient to change the nature of the medical communications process than to try to change the nature of the patient."

Advance knowledge of a patient's compliance personality enables the healthcare provider/manager to target existing patient management resources using the Emap Compliance Communications Guide to identify specific patient intervention methods. The EMap typology can be viewed as a low-cost extension of the traditional patient history, using a simple questionnaire that can be completed in a few minutes, and the Emap statistical analysis which assigns the patient to one of the six distinct Emap profiles.

EnrichMap is seeking organizations to conduct research projects to demonstrate the benefits that Emap can provide in their own healthcare applications. The Emap program is available to clinicians, clinical trial researchers, healthcare management systems, employee wellness programs, insurance providers, and others invested in improving patient compliance and reducing healthcare costs.
