·7 min read

Dublin, Feb. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Medication Adherence: Systems, Technologies and Global Markets 2021" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

This report is an analytical business tool whose primary purpose is to provide a thorough evaluation of the global market for medication adherence.

Medication adherence systems include hardware-based systems (e.g., smart pill bottles, smart caps, automated pill dispensers, electronic trays, smart medical watches, smart medical alarms, wearable sensors and other packaging systems) and software-based internet applications (e.g., cloud-based databases, health programs, patient web portals, mobile medication management applications, etc.) designed to improve medication adherence associated with various chronic = diseases.

The study covers the following:

  • Detailed description of medication adherence systems and technologies including software applications (apps).

  • Demographics and cost burden of targeted chronic diseases.

  • Market characterization, unmet need, market size and segmentation.

  • Market drivers and restraints.

  • Detailed market projections through 2025.

  • Competition and market shares.

  • Key marketed products along with information about their regulatory status.

  • Strategic landscape (merger and acquisitions).

  • Regulatory structure.

  • Pricing and reimbursement.

  • Observations and conclusions on the future of medication adherence systems and technologies.

  • Profiles of market participants and associations.

Report Includes:

  • 20 data tables and 16 additional tables

  • An overview of the global markets and technologies for medication adherence

  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2019, 2020, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2025

  • Description of disease and economic burden, and cost and morbidity in chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases (CVD), musculoskeletal disorders, gastrointestinal/digestive diseases, and cancer

  • Details about adherence measurement, medication adherence and non-economic factors and methods to improve medication adherence

  • Market share analysis of the medication adherence markets based on product/services, disease and region

  • Identification of market drivers, restraints and other forces impacting the global market and evaluation of current market size, and market forecast of the medication adherence systems markets

  • Discussion on advantages of software and mobile applications, and effectiveness of smartphone adherence apps on the general population

  • Information on key marketed and pipeline products challenges to improving medication adherence with technology and future developments of the industry

  • Insights into regulation and reimbursement scenarios including, U.S. FDA technical considerations, FDA policy for low-risk and general wellness devices and regulatory systems for medication adherence systems and applications

  • A look at the key industry acquisitions, strategic alliances and market share analysis of the leading suppliers of the industry

  • Comprehensive profiles of major players in the industry, including ActualMeds Corp., etectRx, Health Net Inc., MedaCheck, Omnicell Inc., and Philips Healthcare

Medication non-adherence remains a common healthcare problem across developed and developing nations. It is one of the major public health concerns because it adversely impacts patient outcomes, increases healthcare utilization and associated costs.

Pharmaceutical, medical devices and healthcare providers are turning to medication adherence systems and software applications to deal with the current challenges associated with medication nonadherence. Dispensing cabinets and dispensers automate the management and dispensing of medications while smart pill bottles help in dispensing the right medication at the right time, in the right quantity with the right instructions. Increasing acceptance of medication therapy management systems, smart pill bottles, smart caps, automated pill dispensers, electronic trays, smart medical watches, smart medical alarms, wearable sensors, specialized packaging systems and software-based internet applications (cloud-based databases, web portals and mobile applications) are helping patients, payers and providers with the management, dispensing and monitoring of medications.

Overall, medication adherence systems offer improved drug adherence, real-time data monitoring, logical calculations and network communication. Medication adherence systems can be categorized into two major segments: hardware-based medication adherence systems and software-based internet applications (apps). The growth of the medication adherence systems market is being driven mainly by factors such as the growing elderly population, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, the widespread adoption of smartphones and other technological advancements within the life sciences industry.
