Medication compliance is a critical component in the success of any medical treatment. However, only 50% of patients correctly adhere to their prescription regimens. Mobile and ubiquitous technologies have been proposed to tackle this challenge, mainly in the form of memory aid solutions that remind patients to take their pills. However, most of these methods do not engage patients in shifting their behavior towards better compliance. In this paper, we propose and evaluate a mobile phone-based… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

MAR: A Study of the Impact of Positive and Negative Reinforcement on Medication Adherence Reminders
TLDR
Both the reward and penalty features were found to promote medication adherence behavior above the MAR-1 baseline level, and no statistically significant difference in medication adherence was found between the two approaches. Expand
Towards better medication adherence apps: preventing forgetfulness by facilitating the formation of routine-based remembering strategies
TLDR
This thesis shows that adherence apps could effectively support long-term regimens by facilitating the formation of medication routines based on multiple contextual cues, and highlights the need to account for prospective remembering in future habit formation theories. Expand
Don't forget your pill!: designing effective medication reminder apps that support users' daily routines
TLDR
Design requirements for building medication reminders that support the routine aspect of medication-taking and its individual nature are presented, and how they could be implemented to move from passive alerts to a smarter memory and routine assistant are demonstrated. Expand
Mobile Persuasive Technology: a Review on Thai elders health service opportunity
TLDR
The challenge of this research is to design the user interfaces, to specify the persuasive domain, as well as to apply suitably with the elderly in Thailand to confront such problems. Expand
Designing for patient-centred factors in medical adherence technology
TLDR
Preliminary evaluations with elderly users indicate that apart from the ease of use and usefulness of a technology, users' prior experiences may be a key factor in increasing the acceptance of these technological aids. Expand
A Qualitative Assessment of an Ambient Display to Support In-Home Medication of Older Adults
TLDR
It is observed that seniors have risky medication-related behaviors as a consequence of the challenges impose by the setting, such as the lack of adequate pharmaceutical policies regarding the rational use of medicines and the follow-up on patients’ medication regimens. Expand

BACKGROUND Low adherence to prescribed medications leads to serious negative health consequences in older adults. Effective interventions that improve adherence are often labor-intensive and complex.Expand
Understanding the use of contextual cues: design implications for medication adherence technologies that support remembering
TLDR
It is shown that, given the latest developments in technology, adherence technologies should help users recognize contextual cues they already have at their disposal and reinforce relevant cues available in their environment. Expand
Using paper prototyping to assess the perceived acceptance of MedMate: A home-based pill dispenser
TLDR
A paper prototype of MedMate, a home-based pill dispenser designed to aid medication management and improve adherence, and a user study to gain more in-depth understanding of the users' perceived acceptance and more importantly their concerns regarding MedMates. Expand
Assisting older adults with medication reminders through an audio-based activity recognition system
TLDR
A system based in machine learning for audio-based activity recognition using Hidden Markov Models over Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients and the integration of conversational agents into the system may support the mental association among activities and medication regimens that older adults fail to realize.

Pharmacist Intervention to Improve Medication Adherence in Heart Failure
TLDR
In this trial, 314 low-income patients with congestive heart failure were randomly assigned to a pharmacist intervention or usual care, hypothesized that the intervention would improve adherence to heart failure medications, reduce exacerbations requiring emergency department visits or hospitalization, increase patient satisfaction, and reduce health care costs.
