Medisafe Partners with American Healthcare Consulting Firm Lash
Lash will combine Medisafe's mobile drug compliance application into its current service programs, to help patients adhere to their drug-taking regimen
For daily updates, subscribe to our newsletter by clicking here.A 2003 World Health Organization report found that only 50% of chronic patients adequately comply with their medical regimen in developed countries, and the number was even lower in developing countries, making lack of adherence a serious issue for healthcare providers worldwide.
“We know that nearly three in four patients are non-adherent to their medication in some way,” said in a statement Tommy Bramley, President of Lash Group.
Medisafe states its research shows patients who use its platform refill their prescriptions as much as 17% more than non-users. As part of the partnership, Medisafey will identify "at risk" patients for Lash and help provide them with visibility into the approval and shipment status of their medication.
