Study published outlining the impact of compliance prompting packaging
Published in recent weeks in the Dovepress Patient Preference and Adherence journal, the study tracked hypertensive patients receiving a single pill combination of valsartan-hydrochlorothiazide using unit dose packaging . Adherence rates for 4600-plus patients receiving the drug at Walmart pharmacies in the DiovanHCT ShellpakTM reminder package were studied over 11 months. These were compared with adherences rates for an additional 4600-plus patients who did not receive the reminder packaging over the same period of months.
Among the study findings:
- Patients with the reminder package exhibited an 80% medication possession ration versus 73% for those without the reminder package
- Those receiving the package had a 13% higher proportion of days covered
- Patients receiving the DiovanHCT pack refilled their prescriptions four days earlier on average than the other patients.
- Patients with the reminder pack were more likely to continue their therapy over the long term.
