50% of patients in the U.S. either forget to take their medication or take the wrong dose. This increases preventable disease progression and hospitalizations. 125,000 Americans die annually from poor medication adherence at a cost of $100B per year.
Our solution leverages mobile messaging connected to phones & smartwatches (e.g. Pebble/Android Wear) to improve care and reduce costs. Physicians and nurses dictate information to the web platform using Nuance’s technology. Patients receive simple-to-read, time-sensitive reminders about taking their medication and preparing for appointments. Depending on their condition, they’ll also receive automated lifestyle & care management advice to help them better understand their illness, the significance of their test results, and make sense of medical jargon. Our predictive analytics server gives providers actionable advice based on patient responses. We plan to pilot this in a local community health center for patients with chronic diseases
