AMSTERDAM – Royal Philips is participating in two programs to help improve medication adherence rates among at-risk, high-cost patient populations.
Leveraging the Philips Medication Adherence Solution, Triad HealthCare Network of Greensboro, N.C. will incorporate a Philips medication-dispensing device in a program designed to improve patient medication adherence among chronic disease patients within the Medicare Advantage population.
Lynn Community Health Center of Lynn, Massachusetts will work with Partners Connected Health of Partners HealthCare to implement a Philips connected in-home medication dispensing solution to help improve treatment plan compliance among patients with mental illness.
“As health systems work to better manage high-risk, high-cost patient populations to deliver value-based care successfully, it is critical they have access to the right data with actionable insights,” said Derek Ross, business leader of population health management at Philips, in a statement. “PMAS offers care providers data-driven insights to help optimize medication management and increase patient engagement.”
The PMAS offers a connected ecosystem including: a monitored in-home dispensing device; pre-packaged, unit-dose medications from mail order and specialty pharmacies; a clinician portal; and a caregiver app. The solution provides clinicians, pharmacists and caregivers with daily notifications of non-adherent patients, helping to facilitate delivery of proactive and preventive care, while driving down costs of medical complications related to non-adherence, such as unplanned hospital visits.
“Participating in these programs with Partners Connected Health and Triad HealthCare Network helps our customers improve medication adherence of their highest-acuity patients, and to deliver better value-based care,” said Ross.
