Following the positive feedback received at this year’s Pharmacy Show, our team of experts have continued to showcase and get further encouraging feedback about Biodose Connect™ at the Care and Dementia Show in Birmingham and Commissioning Live in Liverpool. Both shows provided opportunities to make new contacts and demonstrate our innovative solutions to medical adherence.
Building on the success of the Biodose® medication management trays, Biodose Connect™, the pioneering telehealth version helps support medical adherence in patients with long-term conditions through its unique visual and audio reminders, aiding patients to take the right mediation, at the right dose, at the right time.
With around half of all medicines prescribed to those with long-term conditions not being taken as recommended1 resulting in 8% of hospital admission and readmissions2, Biodose Connect™ aims to be a proactive and preventative solution for the patients managing their own medication.
Ian Pearce, Managing Director of the Medical Adherence division said, “The feedback which we have received from all the events we have attended this year with Biodose Connect™ has been extremely positive, with those who saw a live demonstration appreciating how it could help to enhance patient outcomes in their healthcare setting.
“Supporting those with long-term conditions is core to our Business and with its clever reminder systems and real-time adherence monitoring capabilities, the pioneering technology aims to not only support the Healthcare sector in keeping patients independent and healthy, but subsequently reduce both the human and financial costs.”
We hope everyone who attended the shows found them as useful and informative as we did. If you didn't manage to visit us and would like to arrange a demonstration at a time convenient to you, please call +44 (0) 1260 292 840 or email email@example.com
