IMPak Health Releases The Kraken

Kraken is the solution to medication monitoring

NEPTUNE, N.J., Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nearly 50% of the prescriptions written every year in the United States aren't taken as directed – or at all.

As an increasing number of patients refuse to comply with their own physician's medication guidelines, so spikes our country's number of acute care and nursing home admissions, physician visits – and a cost to America that's currently estimated by the New England HealthCare Institute to be $290 billion – and rising.

"When patients are being discharged home from the hospital, they are more vulnerable to medication adherence challenges," said James Clarke, MD, vice president of clinical effectiveness at Ocean Medical Center. "If patients do not take their prescriptions as prescribed by their physician, they are at risk for preventable emergency room visits and hospital admissions." 

"All hospitals are focused on trying to reduce preventable readmissions, and lack of compliance with medication is area of focus to improve overall patient care," he added.  In response to this growing problem, iMPak Health has released their latest product: Kraken.

Kraken is the iMPak Health solution to medication monitoring in the digital age, a unique, user friendly alternative allowing patients and physicians to organize, track and outline prescription schedules freely and accurately.

Here's how Kraken works:
  1. Users update medication management system according to prescription schedule
  2. Data is uploaded to a Bluetooth 4.0 enabled device using the Kraken app
  3. Data is ready to share with individual physicians or family members in the form of a compliance report

With Kraken, iMPak Health aims to simplify the core elements of medication management, including sorting and reminding, compliance and symptom tracking.  With the increasing push toward "performance based" payment initiatives, it is becoming even more important to track not only compliance, but patients' overall reaction to medication.
