FOR HEALTH INSURERS
Improve Health Outcomes and Reduce Costs
Avoid ED visits & hospitalizations
Each year, approximately half of medication is not taken properly, which leads to about $300 billion in avoidable costs: often a result of emergency visits and hospitalizations caused by worsening conditions.
Accurately measure adherence
Traditional measures to understand adherence, such as medication possession ratios, do not account for actual nonadherence.
Reduce costs & improve outcomes
emocha improves direct medication adherence, thereby helping patients achieve improved clinical outcomes. This enables plans to meet quality measure targets and reduce costs.
By creating a daily connection with our members, this new program will help to improve healthcare for the most vulnerable.
Adherence Service Features
Outreach & Enrollment
Through targeted recruitment initiatives including email, phone, and SMS, emocha reaches out to patients through in-person onboarding and enrolls them in a holistic adherence program.
Daily Observation & Assessment
emocha’s team evaluates the patient’s submission to determine if medication was taken, side effects were reported, proper technique was followed, and dosage was correct.
Patient Support & Engagement
Because human engagement drives adherence, emocha connects with patients through a daily interaction to foster relationships.
Providers and care team members have access to detailed metrics surrounding dose-by-dose adherence to accurately understand patient progress.
DOT for Treatment Adherence with Hypertension Patients
Benefits of leveraging Directly Observed Therapy for Treatment-Resistant Hypertension
Read the findings from a study published in JAMA, which confirm that patients with substantially improved blood pressure subsequent to DOT had a sustained improvement in controlled blood pressure one month later, and inherent limitations of alternate adherence methods.
