Collaboration to focus on medication adherence for population health management
RALEIGH, N.C. — Ateb Inc. has teamed up with Improved Patient Outcomes Inc. to provide population health management solutions aimed at improving medication adherence via patient behavioral changes.
Ateb said Monday that the collaboration leverages its pharmacy network and data integration technology with Improved Patient Outcomes’ behavioral solution across 90 disease states.
Ateb’s Appointment-Based Model (ABM) enables pharmacies to actively engage patients to help them better manage their medications appropriately, resulting in improved health outcomes, the company said. That’s complemented by Improved Patient Outcomes’ outcomes-based technology, which incorporates with Duke University’s evidence-based behavioral content.
“By augmenting our technology with evidenced-based behavioral content, our valued pharmacy partners can make a substantial difference in their patients’ medication adherence, leading to healthier outcomes for the patients and also demonstrates the ability for pharmacy to deliver more accessible and affordable health care,” commented Frank Sheppard, president and chief executive officer of Ateb.
Through the integration of Improved Patient Outcomes’ proven behavioral content with Ateb’s online Patient Management Access Portal (PMAP), Ateb pharmacy partners can identify high-risk patients and use predictive indicators to take the steps needed to help them understand their chronic disease states and lower their risk factors.
To that end, pharmacies can use Ateb’s current patient communication solution — including outbound calls, texts and push notifications — to develop simple communication protocols to drive proactive behavioral interventions that lead to lasting behavioral changes in patients, according to Ateb.
“Our proven behavioral solution empowers pharmacists to engage patients in a more sustainable and meaningful way, leveraging technology to increase scale and efficiency while deploying proven behavioral change interventions via digital channels,” stated Greg Muffler, CEO of Improved Patient Outcomes, a provider of behavior-based patient engagement and medication adherence solutions.
