Identifying High Risk with Smart Lists and Risk Profiles

Medication non-adherence is a major crisis in healthcare today. With 7 in 10 Americans taking medications but only 50% taking them as prescribed, the stakes couldn’t be higher for ensuring proper medication use. At EveryDose, helping healthcare providers take better care of their patients has always been at the core of our mission. Today, we’re excited to release two new features for our Clinical Portal that will dramatically change the way providers care for their patients: Smart Lists and Risk Profiles. 

Smart Lists: Intelligent, customizable patient lists 

Through our conversations with healthcare providers across the country, we’ve learned about the challenges clinicians face with medication compliance. Knowing which patients need extra attention or follow up is not an easy task. 

Our new Smart Lists feature allows organizations and their clinicians to create custom, “smart” patient lists based on dozens of configurable criteria. Once a Smart List is created, patients are automatically added to the Smart List if their data matches the criteria for that list. For example, a clinician may create a Smart List that includes all patients whose medication adherence rate is less than 80%. Another clinician may create a Smart List to show all patients who are currently taking 7 or more medications and who take an injectable medication. 

Once the clinicians create these Smart Lists, their patients will *automatically* be added to the lists going forward. Smart Lists are a great way to stay organized while ensuring medication adherence and targeted follow-up.  

Risk Profiles: A better way to stratify your patients 

In addition to filtering patient populations into configurable lists, healthcare providers have also expressed the need to stratify their patients based on medication profiles.  With Risk Profiles, our system now enables organizations to create customizable Risk Profiles that are automatically assigned to patients.  

For example, oncology practices focus heavily on ensuring compliance to oral chemotherapy medications. With Risk Profiles, a practice can create multiple new Risk Profiles to aid these efforts. One real-life example is a Risk Profile that assigns a risk of “high” to a patient who is taking an oral chemotherapy pill *and* a high-risk medication (HRM). This new assigned risk can help clinicians pay closer attention to this patient’s medication use. 

As healthcare professionals strive to provide better care, we’ll always be there to help support them.  Today’s release adds more automation and intelligence to our clinical platform, advancing our commitment to helping healthcare organizations get the most out of medications.
