Dosecast for Health Plans
The impact of medication adherence among the chronically ill
Empower members to improve their health through better medication adherence – while serving providers and reducing healthcare costs. Now that’s a win-win.
Dosecast is a medication management app for Apple, Android, and Amazon devices that tracks and improves medication adherence. Dosecast empowers members to manage their diseases more effectively, improving their productivity. It aggregates, delivers, and reports on actionable adherence intelligence to providers and health plans. By improving member medication adherence and delivering valuable formulary insights, Dosecast helps health plans manage healthcare costs and improve member health.
With Dosecast, members:
- Enter basic information about each medication they take, such as the name, dosage, and how and when they take it. Medication regimens can also be pre-populated automatically by external systems.
- Setup reminders on a fixed schedule, at intervals, or as needed.
- Adapt the dose schedule to their changing day, taking a dose early or postponing it as long as needed.
- Track remaining quantities, receive refill reminders, and log adherence.
Empower members to manage their medication adherence
Members, especially those with chronic conditions, often struggle to adhere to complex medication regimens. Studies have shown that medication non-adherence for chronically ill patients is 50% or higher1, resulting in about $310 billion annually in additional healthcare cost in the US2. Tools to help members manage their diseases play an important role in keeping them healthy, empowering them to take ownership of their diseases and maintain healthy behaviors.
With Dosecast, members track and adhere to the most complex medication regimen on their smartphone or tablet with just a few taps, wherever they are.
Act on accurate and real-time adherence intelligence quickly
Waiting months to receive inferred adherence data from prescription claims misses opportunities to target at-risk members and take early action to promote adherence.
As medications are entered into Dosecast and reminders are sent, a central server provides accurate and real-time intelligence on medication usage and adherence across the entire base of members, identifying those at risk for non-adherence. Empowered with this information, providers and health plans can take prompt action to promote adherence before costly health impacts surface.
With Dosecast, members always have their complete medication history on their mobile devices, enabling clinicians to coordinate care by viewing the medication list and adherence record at a glance to take action.
Reduce healthcare costs while providing valuable formulary insights
Dosecast helps prevent the costly emergency room visits, hospitalizations, physician visits, and follow-up prescriptions that often result from poor medication adherence and care coordination.
In addition, Dosecast’s medication usage and adherence intelligence can identify members at risk from non-adherence for targeted follow-up educational campaigns or pharmacist programs. This intelligence also delivers valuable insights on adherence for particular medications, helping you determine more effective formularies.
