AVENTURA, Fla., Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Compliance Meds Technologies' medication adherence and safety device-enabled platform CleverCap® was recently recognized for Health Care Consumer Engagement and Protection by URAC, a leading health care accreditation organization. During the 2013 Best Practices Awards Gala, the honor was announced as part of URAC's Annual Quality Summit, held September 30 – October 2, 2013 in Washington, DC. This award recognizes the achievements of organizations that effectively advance the role of consumers as active participants in health care through Quality Measurement and Data Analytics best practices.
Compliance Meds Technologies was honored for its CleverCap® device-enabled medication adherence and safety system, a novel technology that allows physicians to give patients the right medication and right time, and at proper dose. Its real-time feedback loop motivates patient engagement and improved outcomes. A CleverCap® enhanced prescription increases engagement with payers, providers and patients by empowering better adherence rates through integrated visual/sound alerts and an adherence score, the CleverScore® that measures actual utilization of medications versus prescribed medication regimens. Its safety tamper-proof and dose control design also represents a powerful solution for prescription medications with a high potential for misuse such as opioids and mental stimulants.
"We are thrilled to be recognized in the healthcare industry for our outstanding technology," said Moses Zonana, Chief Executive Officer at Compliance Meds Technologies. "Such an award validates the quality of the CleverCap® technology solution in addressing the problem of medication non-adherence, which is one of the most serious quality problems in clinical medicine today, posing a staggering burden and heavy financial impact upon both the U.S. and global healthcare system."
Entries were judged by a distinguished panel of prestigious, independent judges including recognized experts in program evaluation, care coordination, health information technology, employer and purchaser decision making and patient safety. Entries were reviewed and scored by the judges based on objective criteria including whether the program was measurable, and if it was reproducible and delivered through a collaborative approach. Organizations were recognized in the categories of care coordination and clinical integration, health plans, and quality measurement and data analytics, with platinum awards given in the categories of Consumer Decision-Making and Consumer Health Improvement.
"This year's Best Practices Awards winners are recognized for their leadership in driving innovation for the health care industry," said Kylanne Green, president and Chief Executive Officer at URAC. "These companies make a difference in the lives of consumers by implementing leading programs with results that matter."
