A Design Driven Approach
Consumers who neglect taking their medications and dietary supplements as recommended exact staggering economic and social costs. It is well-documented that failure to take medications on time and in the correct dosage can be as dangerous and costly as many illnesses. It is equally well-known that methods designed to improve adherence yield outcomes that can save both lives and money. Variant Products is fast becoming a world leader for innovative and ingenious products that provide a complete range of solutions for adherence.
VitaCarry design driven management has developed a line of strategies and solutions to support and enhance consumer's adherence to their medication and dietary supplement regimens answering the needs and demands of consumers, caregivers, and healthcare professionals alike. Tailored intervention tools like our VitaCarry and VitaBuddy products target the root cause of non-adherence, and provide ingenious tablet cases, pill reminders, and pill grinders designed to help consumers across the continuum of health conditions. New pill cutters and a wide range of new pill cases and pill boxes are under development to provide apothecaries across the country with the best tools available.
The staggering cost of non-adherence Total estimated cost of Non-Adherence $300 billion:
10-25% of all hospital admissions
40% of hospital admissions for age 65+
$2,000 annually in additional MD visits per patient
340 deaths per day
50% of all patients are taking their medicine incorrectly
36% of all pharmacy sales are lost due to non-adherence
Studies have provided the following:
More than 125,000 Americans die each year due to prescription medication non-adherence, twice the number killed in automobile accidents.
Every day, prescription non-adherence costs more than $270 million in additional hospitalization and other medical costs.
9 out of every 10 outpatients are taking prescribed medicines improperly, contributing to prolonged or additional illness.
People who miss doses need 3 times as many doctor visits as others and face increased medical costs.
When prescriptions are written:
1/3 of patients take the medicine as directed
1/3 take some of the medicine
1/3 never fill the prescription
Nearly 60% of the prescription medication non-adherence problems could be prevented by improving adherence.
At any given time, regardless of age group, it is estimated up to 59% of those on five or more medications are in non-adherence. This event alone is responsible for:
11% of all hospital admissions
23% of all nursing home admissions
Additional $2,000/yr. spent on healthcare costs
Three times as many doctor's visits
20-25% of employer's healthcare expenses
$300 billion lost to complications of medication errors (US)
1.5 million people each year are injured (US)
218,000 people die as a result of medication errors (US)
To increase adherence
At least one study has shown that the simple use of an adherence or apothecary aid (e.g. pill cases, pill boxes, pill reminders, etc.) can improve adherence by as much as 450% When a medicine or supplement is hard to swallow 12% of Americans over 65 are clinically diagnosed with Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) A pill grinder or a pill crusher can be a useful tool as an aid to compliance if someone is avoiding taking medicines or supplements as prescribed because they are difficult to swallow.
A Message From the President of VitaCarry
It is astounding to Christopher Gardner that in a category as important as medication and supplement adherence, consumers continue to be presented with inferior products. Feeble solutions like clumsy flip lids, hard to use locks and ineffective latches deliver virtually no real value.
He began conceptualizing our NEW Pushbutton Series of pill cases knowing that a typical customer could carry up to a hundred dollars worth of meds and supplements - or more! Reliability and ease of use immediately became the dominant design criteria. The pushbutton concept arose from the frustration people encounter while trying to access their pills through "secure" flip lids. The mechanism we invented will bring relief to millions suffering from arthritis and those simply seeking a better design.
As VitaCarry launch the NEW Power Pill Grinder, it too will target an audience of millions who suffer from dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) and are maybe seeking an alternative to the manual crushers that can challenge anyone with minor dexterity issues. People who find VitaCare's products easier to use are more likely to manage their dosing schedules more effectively. Not coincidentally, they may also look forward to healthier outcomes. Thank you for taking time to learn more about us and here's to your "good health"!
