ICmed, a healthcare technology company, provides a mobile application and web platform that empowers patients, family members and caregivers to collaborate together to improve health outcomes. It also provides healthcare organizations with insightful population health data that can be used to improve health quality, organizational efficiency, and reduce healthcare costs.
Research by the American Heart Association shows that incorporating family support, with professional care coordination, and providing easy-to-read educational materials to both patients and their caregivers, enhances medication adherence and increases patient outcomes. ICMed's technology empowers your organization to provide your patients with an easy to use mobile health application that can deliver appropriate educational materials, automated medication reminders, alert family members when the patient's medications have not been taken and provides you with essential population health data that you can use to manage your performance and continuously improve.
Patients who don't take their medications as prescribed experience worsening conditions, especially those with chronic conditions like hypertension, diabetes, and hyperlipidemia - contributing to increasing costs for care coordinators and others. ICmed's Enterprise Platform and mobile health application help you, your patient and their families work together to improve medication adherence so you can deliver higher quality healthcare while reducing the costs associated with medication non-compliance.
Our medication adherence module combines encouragement from family, and caregivers with appropriate technology, including automated reminders, like text, emails, and other alerts when medications are not taken as prescribed.
"Medication adherence is a pervasive global hidden epidemic with devastating health and economic consequences with the World Health Organization calling poor adherence a "worldwide problem of striking magnitude."

Cost for nonadherence
Adherence in Diabetes Mellitus CMS reports medication adherence in Diabetes Mellitus at 77% with a total estimated health cost in 2012 for nonadherence of $245 billion. Studies with diabetes patients have indicated as high as 28.9% decrease in annual costs with every 10% increase in medication adherence. - Balkrishnan 2003; Roebuck 2014"

boost in adherence
In 2013 CMS began reimbursing healthcare systems for performance on medical adherence using a star rating system of evaluation. A 3-star rating provided no incentive, but as the proportion of adherent patients increased, the economic incentives increased. For example, for a Medicare Advantage Plan with 1 million members, moving from a 3-star to a 5-star rating would boost revenue by approximately $200 million.
