Title

Technological Innovations in Medication Packaging to Improve Patient Adherence: A Systematic Review

Abstract Summary

We identified peer-reviewed research assessing the effectiveness of electronic medication packaging systems intended to reduce medication nonadherence by conducting Boolean searches of the MEDLINE, EMBASE, PsycINFO, CINAHL, and International Pharmaceutical Abstracts databases from 1948-2012. We selected all articles reporting studies in which a technological medication packaging system was tested using randomized, controlled, prospective, or retrospective study designs. Studies that did not report adherence outcomes were excluded. We extracted the results describing the impact of the intervention on adherence, as well as other key findings including changes in health status, costs, and participant feedback.
