Non-Compliance/Adherence is a cluster of behaviors that limit people from benefiting fully with their treatment, which is compounded by a fragmented system of patient care.
Prevalence and Consequences
In a 2011 Consumer Report survey about patient behavior, primary care physicians stated that adherence was their greatest concern. Furthermore, while US doctors fill out 3.8 Billion prescriptions each year, about 50% are taken incorrectly.
More specifically for mental health, on average, more than 40% psychiatric medications are not being taken when prescribed. Serious mental health issues cost ~193 Billion in lost earnings in US alone. Not including the intangible cost throughout society and the economy.
Using our platform, heath care providers (starting with mental health) can create, access, and customize actionable mobile programs for patients to facilitate the treatment that is happening in the office.
Upon diagnosis, a healthcare practitioner will prescribe, monitor compliance, and adapt a custom digital therapy program with a range of interactive features available from our therapy program marketplace.
With our programs we will help healthcare providers build rapport with those under their care, and facilitate adherence and buy-in to the treatment. This will be a vital tool for improving the mental health and wellness of users.
