New Web-Based Medication Management Service Can Help Save Healthcare Dollars
Date:6/10/2009

Poor adherence to medication regimens costs taxpayers $ Billions of each year. NexDose® announces launch of its new IT solution for improved adherence.

Coral Gables, FL (PRWeb)June 10, 2009 -- VivoNex, LLC announces the launch of its online NexDose® Medication Therapy Management System. The NexDose® system offers an opportunity to save billions of healthcare dollars by helping patients take medications properly.


The excess costs in the U.S. associated with patient non-adherence are estimated to be more than $100 Billion annually. In human terms, poor adherence contributes to more than 125,000 deaths from cardiac disease each year and is a major cause for admission to hospitals and nursing homes.

Comparing patient performance to prescribed instructions gives patients and healthcare providers a new platform for improving adherence through intervention and incentive programs.
More than 50% of prescribed medications are not taken properly. Although many factors contribute to poor adherence, the most common reason cited by patients is that they simply "sometimes forget."

The NexDose® system was designed with elements that have been shown to improve adherence. In a comprehensive review of the literature, it was determined that "Strategies that appear to have some effect on long term regimens involve a combination of counseling, reminders, self monitoring, feedback and supportive care" (Haynes, McDonald et al The Cochrine Data Base of Systematic Reviews Vol. 1 2005 Interventions for Helping Patients Follow Prescriptions for Medications). The NexDose® System supports this approach to improve adherence.
