Lozd (Poland)

Introduction to the pilot

The main aim of LODZ-1 use case is to help older adults age well despite the conditions that they develop over time, improving their medication adherence.

Description

Objective

The aim of the Lodz Pilot is to prevent the ageing population with asymptomatic chronic conditions from non-adherence to medication. From the perspective of end-users (e.g. the elderly), the key modifiable factor affecting the effectiveness of these therapies is patient adherence. Therefore, in Lodz, we will take care of patients by executing chronic treatments for asymptomatic conditions.

Target population

Ageing population with asymptomatic chronic conditions taking at least 1 prescribed drug on a daily basis.

Technologies to be used

  • Online questionnaires to assess adherence to medication and the problems around executing prescribed treatments.
  • Health-promotion app to promote health self-management and adherence to medication, and increase health literacy and awareness through a digital coach.

Expected impact

Improvement of medication adherence in the ageing population of asymptomatic patients.

Ongoing activities

Deployment of adherence by improving the mobile app by the end of September 2021.
