Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition

Mednet are delighted to have been successful with Phase 1 of the Medicines Optimisation Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition. The project is looking at advanced medication adherence intervention methods in bipolar disorder (BD).

The project aims to tackle the intentional and unintentional aspects of non-adherence prevalence in patients with BD, through a combination of telemedicine adherence management and integrated psychoeducational support. Phase 1 involves the development and evaluation of an integrated system combining a medicine dosage data tracking system using a SMS connected Monitored Dosage System (MDS), with tailored medication reminders or alerts to patients or carers, and embedded psychoeducation training and support modules for patients.
