Organon Canada extends the Remind Me Today! reminder program

TORONTO, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ - Organon Canada continues to benefit from its Remind Me Today! reminder program for its Linessa(R) and Nuvaring(R) contraceptive brands. Women are delighted by the free telephone-based program that helps them remember their contraceptives and Organon Canada is receiving excellent feedback from their sales reps, physicians and patients.

Organon Canada initiated the Remind Me Today! telephone-based reminder program in February 2007 in an effort to improve brand recognition and offer women a valuable, cost-effective and lifestyle-friendly reminder solution. The number of registrations continues to increase every month, exceeding expectations with a retention rate of higher than 91%.

A closer look at the problem of medication non-compliance reveals that unfilled and unused prescriptions are responsible for over 125,000 deaths in the U.S. every year. (2004 Disease Management Directory and Guidebook; Pharma Futures Inc.)

MEMOTEXT(R) adherence programs are a very cost effective way to improve compliance. Depending on the condition and the patient demographics, telephone-based reminder programs have been shown to increase compliance between 8% and 40%. The MEMOTEXT(R) personalized adherence solution sends automated interactive daily text or voice call reminders to a patient's home, office or cellular phone.

"Medication non-compliance is a serious issue for the healthcare industry," explains Amos Adler, President of Enterprising Vision Inc., provider of MEMOTEXT(R). "Research shows that dropout rates for anti-hypertensive and cholesterol-lowering drugs can be as high as 50%. Billions of dollars are being lost across the board from government to pharmaceutical companies - dollars that are directly attributable to healthcare-related non-compliance."

Organon Canada, makers of the Linessa(R) and NuvaRing(R) contraceptives, understands the important relationship between successful healthcare outcomes and the use of communications technology. "The Remind Me Today! program offers women a highly effective lifestyle tool that takes the stress out of remembering," says Meena Bhogal, Sr. Product Manager. "By offering our patients this unique value-added service we are creating a very positive brand experience that truly differentiates us in the marketplace."

Treating patients as partners in their own healthcare is key. "Patients want to be educated and they want support with approaches that suit their lifestyles. We know that interactive communications technology can bridge this gap." says Adler.

Continuing its commitment to high quality products for women, Organon Canada has renewed its contract with Toronto's MEMOTEXT(R) to provide women with the custom designed Remind Me Today! program until 2009 with free reminder messages until 2010.
