Hospitals and Clinics

Apart from individual patients, hospitals and clinics may be the most effected by the problem of patient adherence. The epidemic that is improper usage of prescription drugs sends hundreds of thousands of patients to the hospital… placing a tremendous strain on hospital resources. This is compounded by the steep fines a hospital or clinic may face if a patient is re-admitted within a month for the same ailment they were previously treated and released for. Not only is this a further strain on available resources, it is incredibly frustrating if the re-admittance is due to non-compliance with prescribed therapies.

The Prescription Notification Group developed Take Meds Now to provide hospitals and clinics with a powerful system that reliably and accurately tracks and demonstrates actual patient adherence behaviors. Our cloud-based application sends automated medication reminders to patient computers and mobile devices (both iOS and Android), who must then manually confirm each dose as taken or the system records it as a miss. This creates a detailed patient adherence history that identifies improper usage and failure to comply with short and long-term prescription drug therapies.

Take Meds Now includes a powerful analytics engine that can measure patient adherence in a number of ways. Hospitals and clinics can segment patients based on doctor or department, measure patient adherence by individual patients, across doctor and/or department, or across all patients… so gaps and trends can be identified. The in-depth analytics offer unparalleled insight into patient adherence trends, so hospitals and clinics can avoid undeserved fines, explore mitigation strategies, and ultimately improve patient adherence.
