EllieGrid's value proposition is simple. By providing users with a product that has a beautiful design, and makes medication management easier, Elliegrid empowers users and helps them take control of their health. As a result, people will be more likely to to take their medication as prescribed and live healthier happier lives.
Physicians want to help their patients stay healthy. One of the biggest reasons why patients are re-hospitalized is non-adherence. By providing their patients with an EllieGrid, doctors can help them stay healthy by helping them stay compliant.
Hospital are not reimbursed by the government if a patient with certain conditions returns to hospital within 30 days. Insurance companies' highest preventable cost comes from non-adherence. It is estimated that the direct cost of non-adherence in the US is about $300 billion. EllieGrid can help lower costs by helping patience adhere to their medication regimen.
EllieGrid is the first company that wil be able to provide actionable analytics based on adherence data. This data can be used in many differnt ways by many different types of organizations. For example, research institution looking to decrease medication adherence could use our data to learn more about the problem and help prevent it. We could also potentially use machine learning in order to predict when someone is going to miss their medications before it even happens! If you are interested in learning more about how you could use compliance data to help improve healthcare, please do not hesitate o reach out.
Have you thought about populating the prescription name on the pillbox as well? From personal experience, I know my grandmother's physician will instruct her to take an extra pill/dose dependent on results of blood work. In this case, where there is a limited change in dosage, it may be easier for the patients to quickly look at the device to determine which pill to take than to log onto their phone to try to match up to the correct prescription.
We have considered it, but we are not sure if it is worth sacrificing the design. What we have works for a lot of people, so for now we are probably going to stick with this design. We might add letters to the bottom of each compartment and then give users stickers with corresponding letters that they can put on the bottle, but that probably would not fix your grandmothers issue. I am sorry about that
