Mixed but encouraging results for Medicaid patients using Pill Phone app

“Results of a pilot study of a mobile app meant to improve medication compliance among chronically ill, low-income patients are mixed but encouraging, the pilot’s facilitators announced at an event MobiHealthNews attended in Washington, DC this week.
The study, funded by a grant from Qualcomm’s Wireless Reach initiative and conducted at the George Washington University Medical Center, found that a small group of Medicaid patients with chronic hypertension were quite willing to receive and act on medication reminders sent to their cell phones. But actual adherence to prescribed medication regimens was harder to attribute to the technology.”
