Improve patient adherence and reduce costs

Over 185 million Americans have health conditions that require medications to be taken for their ongoing treatment, but about half of them do not take their medications as instructed (1). The impacts of this are significant; non-adherence accounts for 30-50% of treatment failures, 125,000 deaths (2), $100 billion in excess hospitalizations, and up to $300 billion in avoidable medical spending each year (3).

Peoplechart helps clinicians and health care organizations optimize outcomes and reduce the overall cost of care by providing actionable, real-time medication adherence solutions that engage the patient, the care team and the physician in ways that truly matter. Our applications automate the tracking of medication fills (adherence) in the context of retail pharmacy and PBM data, and measure the impact of medication therapy on health outcomes through condition-specific lab data. Our ability to aggregate data from multiple sources means that we are not reliant on the patient, physician, or EMR system for information. Our focus on adherence with an equally strong emphasis on medication efficacy makes for a powerful solution in securing improved outcomes and reduced cost.

By stratifying patients who are most at risk of declining health and likely to need costly services, we help organizations manage their care team resources more efficiently in ways that can have the most impact on outcomes and costs. The result is better informed clinicians, healthier patients, and lowered cost of care. Learn more about the Peoplechart difference.

Benefit from our solutions

Peoplechart is well-suited to complement existing systems of major healthcare providers, particularly ACOs and hospital systems that are transitioning to quality/value-based payment arrangements. Our medication tracking application can help reduce admissions to the emergency room and readmissions in the most efficient manner. Through our auto-response feature, we can help improve care quality and resource efficiency in busy, high-stress situations such as primary care settings. By focusing on adherence and efficacy, the Peoplechart solutions balance the need for adherent behavior and sound decision-making to achieve improved outcomes, quality targets, and reduced TME (total medical expenses) for optimal reimbursement. Learn more about our impact.

Regardless of the complexity and diversity of existing information systems, our applications are designed to be flexible and modular – accommodating a range of approaches from light to complete integration. Our certifications with multiple data sources are testimony to our expertise in data exchange and communication (two-ways).
