An accompanying editorial said that improving medication adherence among patients will require a multi-faceted approach and that the devices may have been more effective if coupled with interventions to ensure consistent use or if targeted to individuals with an even higher risk of nonadherence.
The Sensemedic solution is a system that combines medication monitoring with Smart reminding interventions. Smart reminding means that patients will only receive a reminder when they actually forget to take their medication. Sensemedic Smart reminding is a system that has been proven to increase adherence and consistency.
It is our vision that Sensemedic monitoring solution with Smart reminding will be most effective if combined within partnering programs with healthcare professionals, pharmacists and pharmaceutical companies. We believe in combining the strengths of these partners in providing programs to give feedback on adherence, social support and to inform patients about their medication intake.
