Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Las Vegas, Nev. – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced participation in two programs to help improve medication adherence rates among at-risk, high-cost patient populations. Leveraging the Philips Medication Adherence Solution (PMAS), Lynn Community Health Center (LCHC) of Lynn, Mass. will work with Partners Connected Health of Partners HealthCare [1] to implement a Philips connected in-home medication dispensing solution to help improve treatment plan compliance among patients with mental illness. Triad HealthCare Network of Greensboro, N.C. will also incorporate Philips medication dispensing device in a program designed to improve patient medication adherence among chronic disease patients within the Medicare Advantage population.

As health systems work to better manage high-risk, high-cost patient populations to deliver value-based care successfully, it is critical they have access to the right data with actionable insights. PMAS offers care providers data-driven insights to help optimize medication management and increase patient engagement. By partnering with spencer Health Solutions, Philips offers a connected ecosystem: a monitored in-home dispensing device, pre-packaged, unit-dose medications from mail order and specialty pharmacies, a clinician portal and a caregiver app. The advanced solution provides clinicians, pharmacists and caregivers with daily notifications of non-adherent patients, helping to facilitate delivery of proactive and preventive care, while driving down costs of medical complications related to non-adherence, such as unplanned hospital visits.

“Medication non-adherence costs the U.S. health system over $310 billion every year,[2] and results in hundreds of thousands of preventable deaths annually.[3]Philips data aggregation platforms provide continuous and seamless availability of data and their interpretation to help improve patient outcomes and financial results,” said Derek Ross, Business Leader of Population Health Management, Philips. “Participating in these programs with Partners Connected Health and Triad HealthCare Network helps our customers improve medication adherence of their highest-acuity patients, and to deliver better value-based care.”

“Patients on complex medication regimens are at a high-risk for being unable to take their medication as prescribed,” said Dr. Kamal Jethwani, Senior Director at Partners Connected Health. “We have used technology successfully in the past to help such patients manage their medications. This would be our first trial in patients with mental illness, and if successful, would open an exciting opportunity to manage these patients in more effective ways.”
