Phillips-Medisize, a Molex company, has built on a scalable technology that benefits pharmaceutical clients, and their providers and patients; it has released its third-generation connected health platform, which builds on the success of the company's first offering, including the first FDA-approved combination product for medication adherence, and incorporates more than a decade of experience in developing connected health solutions.
Using connectivity in drug delivery devices such as injectors and inhalers, helps pharmaceutical companies, healthcare professionals and patients improve the process of taking medication. In addition to medication tracking, these systems support patients through reminders, incentives and peer communities so as to improve disease management, medication adherence and, ideally, outcomes.
Phillips-Medisize teamed with industry-leading healthcare IT providers to develop a platform that addresses the key challenges faced by the industry. The cloud-based third-generation connected health platform is a secure, reliable and scalable medical device data system. Using an industry-leading health integration engine combined with a rich analytics tool, it can integrate patient data with electronic medical records and other data from pharmacy and IoT devices, allowing customers to conduct insightful analysis focused on improving medication adherence.
