IQVIA Study: Medisafe Digital Companion Dramatically Improves Medication Adherence and Extends Patients’ Therapy Persistence
In response to the challenge that Medisafe users are more inclined to be
adherent with medication management, Medisafe created a study with IQVIA
to measure the impact that digital companions can have on a chronically
non-adherent patient population.
Medisafe’s study measured the impact of digital companions across three
therapeutic areas: hypertension, major depressive disorder, and diabetes on
over 4,000 patients.
Adherence was measured using the Medication Possession Ration (MPR)
identifying patients for this study with a MPR of <0.8 (pre-index before using
Medisafe). The study compared Medisafe users to a control group of non-
Medisafe users who had been prescribed their specific medication for use
between 2014 and 2017 to measure persistence.
- More than 70% of patients became adherent
- Hypertension, diabetes and depression patients increased their median MPR to above 0.9 (out of a possible 1.0) after using Medisafe
- By month 12, hypertension and depression patients were 2-3x more likely to remain on therapy than the controls.
- By month 24, hypertension and depression patients were 6x more likely to remain on therapy than the controls.See all the results: Download the results:
