AdhereBookTM has a very simple email reminder service that will send you an email or SMS every time you need a reminder to take medications, vitamins, or other participate in other events. Set up reminders as needed. These may be recurring, daily or specific days, or they may be one-time reminders. Enter as much or little details you would like to manage and monitor.
AdhereBookTM includes complete medication management scheduling, confirmations when consumed, and notifications to your circle of care including caregivers, health care providers, clinicians and family. Help is available instantly – when you miss a dose, everyone will be alerted.
AdhereBookTM is a unique service. You can manage all patients and their medications with additional information like medical history, allergies, primary caregiver, family contacts and detailed information for first responders to help you quickly.
Health Care providers and research organizations can use AdhereBookTM to manage and remotely monitor their patients. Instant, secure video conferencing is included, regardless of location. AdhereBookTM is completely integrated with the RxPense®. In fact, you can use AdhereBookTM with or without an RxPense®.
Clinical trials can now support decentralization to broaden access and increase participation. Participants may be directly observed and monitored at a distance, with the most modern videoconference and data capturing technology, AdhereBookTM. Patients are no longer required to “self-report” as technology can assist them automatically. Medication measurement, dosing and Rx records are, similarly, automatic and offer very significant improvements.
Non-compliance has been the subject of much research and the various dimensions of adhesion, and the lack thereof, are well documented. Failure to take medications, to failing to take them at the prescribed time and in the prescribed dose, to therapy discontinued by the patient, all amount to non-adhesion and “bad data”.
The failure of therapy to achieve the desired outcome results, very often, in the clinical assumption that drug failure has occurred when non-adhesion is often the true culprit.
Further, the regulatory compliance for accurate reporting of clinical studies is severely compromised as a result of bad data. Technology, like AdhereBookTM, can assure that “good data” is both collected and available.
Considering AdhereBookTM for a clinical trial can reduce project costs by tens of thousands of dollars per participant. In addition, schedules can be reduced and compliance to protocols enhanced.
Remote Patient Monitoring and Control
AdhereBook™ Advantage in a Clinical Trials Environment
|Cost Item||Without AdhereBook™||With AdhereBook™|
|Home Visits: nurse, assistant or HCP visit to the participant’s home. Once or twice weekly.||Weekly: $200/visit Labour+ T&L (24 months = $20,800 – per participant)||$0 Video, Telemedicine communications and real-time data collection.|
|Participant Site Visits: should participants need to visit the Site.||Weekly: $25 Travel cost, Participant time is unpaid||Weekly: $25 Travel cost or $0 if virtual, Participant time is unpaid|
|Vitals collection||$200/visit nursing to visit remote participant site. Assume 1 visit per week = $20,800.||$0 can be continuously monitored|
|Surveys: submission, data capture, complete, review||Email? Paper, complete and mail in, or telephone survey required: $50/survey. Assume 1 survey / wk = $4,000 p.p.||$0 pushed to AdhereBook™ in the Cloud, completed instantly, data captured and reviewed electronically.|
|Reports: generation of detailed individual and population data||Huge data entry and analysis effort required including transcription of manual diaries. Limited Daily, Weekly or Monthly reports. Eg. Weekly reports: $20,800 p.p.||Included. Real-time and flexible reports can be generated for entire population or subsets.|
|Security: Medication Theft, Loss||Can invalidate participant results. Can poison family, friends or visitors.||Meds are locked and secure if RxPense® is included at participant site.|
|Non-adherence: Participant does not follow the regimen.||Wrong dose (high or low), truthfulness = False data, Errors, Inconsistencies, may invalidate study||Instantly noted and alerts CRO to take proactive action.|
|Hospital Re-admission: when participant is non-adherent or adversely affected by the meds||10-25% re-admissions due to non-adherence. 1 day=$4000.||Reduced to $0 for non-adherence. Adverse reactions caught rapidly.|
|Integrity: Cost avoidance, data invalidity, should participant not adhere to program||Stipend and costs associated with non-adherent participant data are lost. This also has the effect of increased risk to the project.||By ensuring adherence, study integrity and validity of results are maintained.|
|Study Protocol: complex to follow||Usually difficult to implement and ensure quality assurance.||Benefits of increased automation, real-time monitoring, tracking results and reporting.|
|Recruitment: attracting participants to your clinical trial||Difficult and costly to recruit. Participants view inconvenience, complexity and possible health risk as deterrent.||Easier due to technology advantage. Less work required by participant. Less intrusive to their daily life. Quick response to adverse events.|
