Smart packaging solution boosts medication adherence by 23%
November 5, 2019: LOG Pharma Packaging announced today that it will launch its innovative patent pending line of ActiveGuard® CONNECT™ smart packaging solutions at CPhI Worldwide 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany from 5-7 November.
ActiveGuard® CONNECT™ was developed in cooperation with Water.IO, with the goal of addressing the lack of patient adherence to prescription medicine or supplementation of nutraceuticals. Low and inconsistent adherence is responsible for 33% of medicine-related hospitalizations, an estimated 125K deaths every year in the US alone, and $300B in avoidable costs to the health care system annually.
ActiveGuard® CONNECT™ features a smart IoT component with integrated desiccant chamber that links and synchronizes with a patient’s smartphone. The smart packaging product enables indication of taken doses, tracks temperature within the bottle, and can remind or alert patients as needed to drive adherence.
LOG Pharma’s smart packaging solution enables Big Data analysis based on historical and real-time data to track compliance and empower pharma & nutraceutical manufacturers to improve medication and supplement efficiency. It also provides manufacturers with a unique connection to engage with the end-customer and build a long-term relationship while increasing sales.
“With only 30-50% medication adherence rate within the general population, ActiveGuard® CONNECT™ harnesses IoT technology and innovation to deliver a patient-centric solution. Using smart packaging and active customer engagement has been proven to increase adherence by 23%. We are proud to add ActiveGuard® CONNECT™ to LOG’s line of high-quality innovative and smart packaging products for the nutraceutical and pharmaceutical markets,” said Ephraim Ulmer, CEO of LOG Pharma Packaging.
