Dramatic Increase in Prescription Drug Use Leads to Rising Health Care Costs

Alex Bettencourt - October 20, 2010

Faced with more complex medication regimes, Americans struggle to take the right medication, at the right time, in the right dose. New mobile health tools offer solutions for increased compliance.

ORINDA, Calif. – September 25, 2010 - Almost half of the U.S. population reported taking a prescription drug in the past month according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Without effective medication management tools the risk of noncompliance and higher health care costs increases.

The CDC also discovered the percentage of Americans who took at least one prescription drug in the past month increased from 44% to 48% over the past decade. The use of two or more drugs escalated from 25% to 31% and the use of five or more drugs rose from 6% to 11%.

In 2007, the Wall Street Journal Online/Harris Interactive poll reported one out of three adults taking a prescription drug on a regular basis did not follow their doctor-recommended course of treatment and two thirds of adults simply forgot to take their medication.

Alex Bettencourt - September 17, 2010

I used to get text-message reminders, but not anymore. What is going on?

One of the main reasons you may not be receiving text-message reminders is because you have switched mobile phone carriers and haven’t updated these changes in your account.

When you switch from Sprint to AT&T for example, you must adjust your mobile carrier settings in your RememberItNow! account. How do you do that?

It’s simple! Start by logging into your RememberItNow! account and click on your User-Name, (see below on step Number 1). Then click on the Reminders tab (see below on step Number 2).

Medication Reminders - Tech Savvy Top 5

Alex Bettencourt - May 17, 2010

Medication reminders, who needs ‘em? Well, when two-thirds of Americans currently use some form of medicine, (49 percent use prescription drugs and 30 percent use nonprescription medications), reminders aren’t such a bad idea.

In fact they should be the solution we should all focus on when the number one problem for treating illness today is because of patient noncompliance, at every age. In order to fix this problem, medication reminders have become more technologically advanced. Some of the latest innovations include the Tattletale Pill, the MagneTrace necklace , Pill Pets, and various smartphone medication reminder applications.

1. The Tattetale Pill
Its name gives away its most basic function; it tells on you when you forget your pills. Caregivers, family, friends, and anyone else helping you manage your health are alerted when a dose is missed. How is this possible? The Tattletale Pill is not necessarily a pill, but a capsule that contains tiny digestible antennas and a microchip the size of a period.

Sounds like a seamless solution right? There are still a few catches. The user must wear a small electronic device which signals a cell phone or laptop and powers the pill through faint bursts of extremely low-voltage electricity. As time passes, the antenna breaks down from the user’s stomach acid, and the microchip is passed along out of the digestive system. (more…)
