Pharmacovigilance Breakthrough: Henry Ford Health System Partners with Rexam and Med Time Technology to Remind Patients to Take Prescription Medication "As Prescribed" to reduce $300 Billion National Healthcare Problem
Date:8/25/2010

DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- A leader in healthcare, Henry Ford Health System will introduce at its hospitals and pharmacies "The Pill Timer," representing a "breakthrough" designed to improve treatment outcomes and reduce adverse drug events often resulting in costly hospital admissions due to poor medication management by patients.

For the first time, pharmacists will provide free programmable timers with Rexam prescription vials, which give audio and visual alerts at prescribed intervals for medication dispensed at pharmacy counters. Rexam is the world's leading manufacturer of prescription vials; Med Time a leader in medication management solutions.  

According to Steve Duda, Director of Pharmacy at Henry Ford Health System, "the strategic alliance will enable Henry Ford Continued Care to help chronically ill patients manage their medication more effectively. The Pill-Timer is an important breakthrough for our patients. We're proud to be early adopters of this medication management system."  

Nationwide, poor medication management is a staggering problem estimated to cause 300,000 deaths and cost the U.S. economy $300 billion annually.

Rexam Sales Director Mike Vanderpol cited a growing recognition that a multidisciplinary approach to medication taking behavior is necessary for medication adherence. This  led to collaboration between Rexam, Henry Ford and Med Time  to promote a new model -- the "Medicine Education Team."

Pharmacists understand that medications should be kept in the original USP approved pharmacy vial as dispensed and medications must be taken at prescribed dosage intervals to be effective, said Craig Schreiber, President of Med Time Technology, Inc., (www.medtimetechnology.com).  Schreiber began development of The Pill Timer after his mother died partly as a result of poor medication management. .
