NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AdhereTech, the leading provider and pioneer of smart devices that connect patients to care via real-time interventions, announced today the launch of the Aidia System, a proven, integrated technology-based solution that empowers patients and healthcare teams to achieve optimal medication success.
Using real-time data collected passively with smart devices, including AdhereTech’s Aidia Smart Bottle (formerly known as the Smart Pill Bottle), the Aidia System enables personalized patient support and timely, proactive care so that patients are no longer on their own when it comes to the challenges of staying on track with their medicines.
“The Aidia System creates personalized patient support with specialty pharmacies and healthcare teams, enabling timely health interventions when they are necessary,” said Josh Stein, co-founder and president of AdhereTech. “The beauty of our solution is that it collects an unprecedented volume of real-world data that, in addition to helping patients in the present, informs how healthcare is delivered.”
The Aidia System is free to the patient and removes the psychological and practical barriers that prevent patients from staying on track with prescribed medicines. Central to the Aidia System is the premise that being tech-savvy is not required for patients to benefit from it. The system requires no setup, no downloads, no learning curve and no new habits or routines. It is designed to effortlessly serve patients of every demographic — young, old, rural, urban, the very ill or the simply forgetful.
“Our healthcare system, now more than ever, is grappling with pressing issues like patient access, health equity, real-world evidence, and data collection. In an era where the industry is seeking to optimize individual patient outcomes, the information we can collect becomes even more valuable,” said Chris O’Brien, CEO of AdhereTech. “In the coming years, we will be fine-tuning not only the devices that connect to our system but the quality of the data we can capture and share with our partners.”
In addition to causing unnecessary health complications for patients, nonadherence to medication regimens costs the pharmaceutical industry hundreds of billions of dollars1 per year.
