The Promise of Connected Health

It is a known fact that measuring medication effectiveness and adherence plays an important role in managing and improving patient health. However, pharmaceutical companies struggle with procuring data that shows when, or even if, patients take their medication. A range of research has demonstrated that up to 50% of all medicines are not taken as prescribed (1). Even for patients with chronic conditions, adherence is only 50-60% (2).

These statistics are pretty eye-opening when it comes to patient health outcomes, but the news also has a negative financial impact for pharma manufacturers as medication nonadherence accounts for approximately $188 billion in lost revenue (3). Taking an even closer look, adherence rates ranging from 31-66% for popular respiratory, diabetes, and autoimmune drugs can leave between $1 billion and $10 billion ‘on the table’ in any given year (4). However, even as little as a 3% increase in adherence can generate more than $1 to $3 billion in additional revenue for these popular drugs over a five-year period. This is significant, especially as the cost of new prescription drug development can be as high as $2.6 billion (5). Despite this investment, even if patients fill their prescription, whether or not they actually take the medication cannot be guaranteed. Connected health solutions can help close this gap.

Tightening Your Supply Chain Against Counterfeits

World Courier

As today’s global pharmaceutical supply chain grows increasingly longer and more complex, each link provides added opportunity for counterfeiters. While pending regulatory changes promise to tighten the supply chain with respect to production and distribution entities and new packaging technologies will make the identification of counterfeit products easier, the logistics of global distribution remains a weak link. How can the pharmaceutical shipper ensure the security of the supply chain over thousands of miles and extended periods of time when the product is no longer in his possession?
