emocha’s full-service Digital Medication Adherence Program is backed by technology using a CDC-endorsed method called Directly Observed Therapy. The technology was initially conceived at Johns Hopkins to solve medication adherence and linkage to care in the most remote parts of the world. emocha now supports and enhances its technology with an engaging, human-powered program to support the gold standard of improving medication adherence. In doing so, emocha has helped transform the delivery of care: driving adherence upwards of 96%. Since 2015, a version of emocha has additionally been used for monitoring public health outbreaks, including Ebola and COVID-19.
"We have witnessed the dedication of the emocha Health team over the last year and their consistent use of the Ostendio MyVCM platform shows they are committed to thinking differently about protecting sensitive data and managing risk,” said Grant Elliott, CEO and chairman, Ostendio. “At Ostendio, we believe that the point of a security program is not merely to satisfy a framework when a company is audited, but to create a culture of data responsibility that is always ready to demonstrate. Our platform makes it routine for companies to automate their programs so audit, or not, the data the company handles is secure and verifiable - with a click.”
