External Factors
Medication Adherence
Causes of Nonadherence
Tina Johnson, Whitney Hayward, Arriel Garris, Jacob Jordan
20 - 30% of prescriptions never filled
50% not continued as prescribed
Rates of adherence drop after first 6-months
Estimated annual direct cost between $100 and 289 billion
$2000 per patient in physcian visits yearly
30 - 50% of treatment failures
125,000 deaths annually
Increased emergency room visits
Definition: "The patient’s conformance with the provider’s recommendation with respect to timing, dosage, and frequency of medication-taking during the prescribed length of time"
By 2020, 157 million Americans with at least one chronic condition will require medication therapy
Not filling prescription
Taking more or less
Ending prescription early
Active decision to not take medication
Rational and influenced by patient beliefs
Passive, unplanned behavior
Confused by directions
How Is Text Messaging Used?
Simple reminder to take medication
Several applications offer this service
Cellular communication infrastructure
Patient use of cell phone
Securely transmit PPI
Improve adherence to medication
Improve patient condition
Does It Help?
Measure Success
Self-reported adherence in interviews
Reduced non-adherence by more than half
Reminded 65% on at least one occasion
JAMA Meta-Analysis
Doubles the odd of adherence
More studies needed
How Do People Feel?
Cell Phones
Regulatory Compliance
MED experiment to engage patients with phones
80% responded to text inquiries
Most responsive age group: 25 - 50 year-olds
Those over 50 respond less than middle-aged
HIPPA security
Cultural differences: non-white respond less
Elderly and poor harder to engage
326 million wireless subscribers
2.2 trillion text messages
Medical Texting Services
CareSpeak Communications' Mobile Medication Manager
"Continuous, interactive communication"
Miscommunication: no auditory/visual cues
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPPA)
Publicize standards for the electronic exchange, privacy and security of health information
Healtchare organizations must:
Maintain reasonable safeguards
Develop and implement written privacy policies
Train members in privacy
Create and use sanctions against members who violate privacy
Conduct periodic safety audits and risks assessments

Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health
Establish programs to improve health care quality, safety, and efficiency through the promotion of health IT
Affordable Care Act
Provisions to encourage proper medication use
Pay-for-performance systems
financial incentives for achieving better outcomes
Security Risks:
Improper disposal
Unauthorized interception of ePHI transmission
Lack of availability of ePHI to other persons
No auditory/visual cues
Misinterpretation of messages
Unreliable service
Radio waves travel between cell bases
Proximity, physical obstacles, weather, interference
