VUCA Health Delivers Pharmacy Video Guidance to Enhance Patient Medication Adherence for MyMeds Customers
LAKE MARY, FL –(MarketWired) – (June 6, 2016) – VUCA Health announced today that MyMeds, a secure web and mobile platform that helps users manage medication use, will now receive on-demand patient education videos designed to drive medication adherence and safety.
Powered by VUCA, professional counseling videos on medication use will be available to customers utilizing the MyMeds application on a patient’s preferred device. These informative videos provide a more impactful alternative for delivering comprehensive medication information and answers to patient questions than traditional brochures and packaging printouts.
“As the medical landscape evolves, so too must our methods of communicating with patients. VUCA’s informative medication counseling videos provide a more engaging solution that better addresses the modern challenges of medication adherence,” said Pete Clagett, CEO, MyMeds. “Our highest priority is to provide patients with a superior medication management experience and incorporating these videos into our system allows us to continue to improve upon that mission.”
MyMeds customers will have access to the complete library of prescription-specific video briefings that deliver information on top-prescribed medications, including proper usage, expected benefits and potential side effects. Available anytime, anywhere, in English and Spanish, the videos are an on-demand solution to a challenge many patients face — complying with medication recommendations and proper dosage.
“We are thrilled that MyMeds has chosen to integrate our innovative videos into its platform to provide an easy and convenient way for patients to access their medication information,” said VUCA Health CEO David Medvedeff, PharmD, MBA. “MyMeds’ forward-facing technology reflects the core of its mission and our own by helping to promote health literacy among its consumers and empowering them to actively engage in their care decisions.”
MyMeds (http://my-meds.com) is a Minneapolis-based digital healthcare company that uses technology to address and improve one of the biggest issues in healthcare — the $300 billion problem of medication non-adherence (not taking medicines as prescribed).
The MyMeds solution provides a secure, cloud-based, HIPAA-compliant, omni-channel platform that has been recognized in the Journal of the American Pharmacists Association as one of the top adherence systems in the country. Recently, MyMeds launched the first of its kind auto-populated medication adherence platform for its employer, health plan and PBM clients.
