IVR & Medication Adherence
IVR telemonitoring interventions have been shown to improve adherence to medications for chronic diseases. IVR technology is a computer-based telephone system that initiates calls, receives calls, provides information and collects data from users. Patients often interact with these automated systems to get clinic appointments and/or refill prescriptions. Studies with IVR have demonstrated improvements in medication adherence and intermediate outcomes (e.g., diastolic blood pressure and hemoglobin A1C).[13–16]
