ScriptDrop and Adheris Health Pair Prescription Delivery With Adherence Programming
Partnership will connect patients to health and wellness-related programs and home delivery to reduce abandonment rates and improve long-term health outcomes.
COLUMBUS, Ohio, November 2, 2021 (Newswire.com) - ScriptDrop Inc. and Adheris Health®, a MedAdvisor® company, are pleased to announce they will be partnering to further improve medication adherence for patients in all 50 states.
Medication non-adherence is a very large and costly problem in healthcare, resulting in as much as $289 billion in avoidable costs and 125,000 lost lives every year. When patients are unable to access their prescriptions or don't understand why or how to take them, their therapy journey ends before it begins.
By combining Adheris Health's patient engagement solutions with ScriptDrop delivery, the two companies can help patients successfully start and stay on therapy.
"This combination of education, support and access will be a game-changer. By providing an improved patient experience through intelligent engagement solutions and comprehensive resources coupled with the convenience of home delivery, we help empower patients to live healthier," said Adheris Health CEO and President, John Ciccio. ScriptDrop Vice President of Business Development, Lou Ann Myers, concurred. "This partnership is a winning solution for everyone involved," she said. "Providers can be sure that patients have started therapy. Pharmacists benefit from reduced prescription abandonment. Pharmaceutical brands can ensure patients have access to programs that help them stay on therapy. And, most importantly, patients are more likely to remain healthy long-term."
ScriptDrop offers a streamlined, in-workflow prescription delivery solution that puts medications in the hands of the patients who need them. ScriptDrop allows pharmacies to electronically request same-day, on-demand, and shipping delivery on behalf of their patients. ScriptDrop then engages their nationwide courier network to take prescriptions from the pharmacy counter to the patient's doorstep.
