Meeting the challenges of medication non-adherence

Medication non-adherence is a serious, widespread issue that impacts clinical outcomes and contributes to rising healthcare costs. In fact, 20-30 percent of prescriptions written are never filled by patients and around half of all medications for chronic conditions are not taken as prescribed. As a result of this non-adherence, patients may experience preventable complications, disease progression, acute events and hospitalizations.

How does Avella overcome non-adherence?


Smart, wireless pill bottles that use lights and chimes to remind patients to take their medication.

How does it work? The AdhereTech system makes automated phone calls to patients or caregivers if a dose is missed. Patient responses are sent to a live care team who can contact the individual in real time to ensure they are using the medication appropriately. 

Currently available for Avella patients taking certain oral oncolytics for FDA approved indications.
