Increase patient engagement

emocha’s RTM program is all about engagement, with daily video check-ins for patients, text message medication reminders, secure chat, and other tools. Our nurses, pharmacists and healthcare experts reach back to answer questions, make medication technique corrections, and provide reminders.

Improve clinical outcomes in less than 90 days

Research shows that about half of patients don’t take their medications as prescribed. A high-performing RTM program focused on medication adherence can assure patients properly take their medications and stay out of the hospital. Providers can use our platform to proactively monitor medication therapy for asthma, COPD, and many other chronic conditions.

How Remote Therapeutic Monitoring for medication adherence works:

Enrollment & initial engagement

Providers identify eligible patients and enroll them in emocha’s digital medication adherence program. Our clinicians connect with patients by phone and secure chat to ensure personalized onboarding in a holistic adherence program.

Clinical observation & assessment

Patients typically begin the program with a pharmacist-led comprehensive medication review. They then download emocha and begin submitting daily videos describing how they are feeling and taking their medication. emocha’s care team reviews patient-submitted data and responds back to encourage adherence and resolve any barriers identified. Patient videos are assessed daily to determine if medications are being properly taken, manage any reported side effects, and correct administration techniques as needed. emocha also identifies whether social determinants of health are impeding medication adherence.

Patient support & ongoing engagement

Patients respond to human connection, so emocha connects with patients daily to foster relationships, offer support, provide health and medication education, and keep patients motivated

Actionable analytics

Provider teams will see detailed patient and population-level analytics for dose-by-dose adherence. Providers will gain a better understanding of patients’ healthcare habits between visits and have detailed data to inform your next in-person or remote appointment.
