Adherence packaging drives gains in patient persistency

Independent study shows unit-dose patient adherence packaging improves patient persistency over 12 months.

An adherence study looking at patient persistency rates over a 12-month period by analyzing a cohort of ~200,000 qualified patients who filled their prescriptions in either a traditional bottle or a patient adherence package found that the adherence package had a 17-point increase in persistency. Persistency rates were defined as the percentage of patients who remained compliant or restarted therapy over the 12-month tracking cycle.
Using patient data from SDI, a provider of anonymous patient-based prescription data. SDI's prescription coverage represents claims data from more than 50% of the retail pharmacies in the U.S.

Unlike the conventional 30-count bottle, which is commonly used throughout North America, adherence packaging is designed with a focus on unit dosing, reminder prompting, printed instructions, time-dating and other features that enable delivery of the right dose at the right time. Adherence packaging safety is enhanced through child-resistance features, and adult-friendly attributes are designed make the package easier for patients to open.
