Medicines optimisation is an essential component of healthcare that aims to ensure that patients receive the right medication at the right time, in the right dose, for the right condition, and with the appropriate support to ensure adherence. It is an ongoing process that involves the careful selection, prescribing, dispensing, and monitoring of medications to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients.
Adherence, on the other hand, is a patient's willingness and ability to follow the prescribed treatment regimen as instructed by their healthcare provider. Adherence is crucial in ensuring the effectiveness of the prescribed medication, reducing the risk of complications, and improving patient outcomes.
In this blog, we will explore how AI can support medicines optimisation and adherence.
How can AI support medicines optimisation?
There are several ways that AI can help with medicines optimisation:
How can AI support medication adherence?
Medication adherence, or the extent to which patients take their medications as prescribed, is affected by a multitude of factors. One significant factor is the complexity of the medication regimen, which includes factors such as the number of medications, the frequency of dosing, and the timing of doses. AI can help to develop interventions that promote medication adherence and improve patient outcomes, for example:
AI has the potential to revolutionise medicines optimisation and adherence by providing clinicians with real-time information and recommendations, identifying patients at risk of adverse events and non-adherence, and improving patient engagement and understanding of their medications.
However, it is essential to consider the ethical implications of using AI in healthcare, such as data privacy and security, algorithm bias, and the potential for AI to replace human clinicians. As such, it is crucial to ensure that AI is used responsibly and ethically in healthcare, with a focus on patient safety and outcomes.
