November 13, 2013

Engagement system for patient education, medication safety, and medication adherence

DOYLESTOWN, Pa., Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — ONS:Edge, a leading medical communications company dedicated to the transfer of cancer knowledge to oncology nurses to improve patient outcomes, has joined the Mobile Health Library(T)(M) (MHL) clinical engagement system to provide app-based tools to support more than 30,000 oncology nurses using its web portal, www.onsedge.com.

“Our 2013 survey of oncology nurses revealed a need for point-of-care smartphone and tablet app resources that help patients better adhere to their prescribed treatment regimens,” remarked Pamela Oestreicher, PhD, of ONS:Edge. The MHL system allows ONS:Edge to support its pharmaceutical and medical device clients’ needs with HIPAA-secure mobile engagement services that promote medication and medical device safe-use, medication adherence, disease understanding, and health outcomes attainment, all through the simplicity of a single app interface for doctors, nurses, and patients.

“Our special relationship with ONS:Edge brings a clinical advantage to the design and deployment of app-based solutions that support oncology nurses, especially those designed to increase medication adherence and medication safe-use for cancer patients and their caregivers,” said Rob Dhoble, CEO of Adherent Health, LLC, licensor of the Mobile Health Library system.

“Safe use of medication by patients has become a rallying cry for industry,” added Peter Pitts, former FDA Associate Commissioner and Chief Regulatory Officer of Adherent Health. “With the MHL system, medication adherence and medication safe-use resources can be accessed and delivered more simply, through mobile apps that support nurses in their delivery of patient care,” added Pitts.

The ONS:Edge Oncology Nurse Resource Center for healthcare professionals is now available in Mobile Health Library, a free app in the iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon app stores. The ONS:Edge Oncology Nurse Resource Center provides easy access to ONS:Edge programs and materials and offers simplified connections to reimbursement assistance services and disease state information.
