Use VITALITY to see your members' adherence rise
Quantifying the cost-savings of high adherence
Recent research published in Medical Care (pdf) affirms that high-adherence saves care costs. For each additional dollar spent on high cholesterol medications there was $5.10 saved in care costs. And for high blood pressure medications,$3.98 saved.
Vitality offer a cost effective and scalable solution to increase adherence especially for chronic asymptomatic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
In Vitality’s recent beta test, participants using GlowCap© for a once a day medication or vitamin achieved 86% adherence over a 3 month period. This is substantially higher than the 50% average watermark attributed to the
Patient close network accountability
Vitality's solutions acheive high-adherence by engaging the close social network of the patients in the medication management.
1. Reminders Ramp from Subtle to Insistent
GlowCap© uses light and sound to signal when it is time to take a pill. GlowCap© senses when the bottle is opened and wirelessly relays its status to Vitality’s secure network. If the bottle is not opened two hours after a scheduled dose, the user is automatically reminded with a telephone call that states: “It’s time to take the pill in your green GlowCap©.”
2. Social Support
Each week, a report summarizing progress is e-mailed to the GlowCap© user. If the
user chooses, a family member, friend or caregiver may also receive the report.
3. Refill Coordination
GlowCap© can even call with refill reminders and connect the patient to their pharmacy as pills deplete.
4. Doctor Accountability
Each month GlowCap© mails you a printed report. The report may also be sent to your doctor.
