"The Use of PDAs to Improve Treatment Adherence in Patients with Diabetes"

A small group of primary care researchers from the Penn State College of Medicine Department of Family & Community Medicine looked at ways to improve adherence to medication treatment plans. Dr. William Curry, MD, MS conducted a randomized trial in participants with diabetes who were taking three or more medications. He recruited over 100 adults. Those participating were randomly assigned to an intervention group or a control group. Each group had their medications counted on a monthly basis for six months. The intervention group received a PDA - personal digital assistant - with the OnTimeRx medication reminder software. Dr Curry's theory was that those using the PDA tool would be better adherent to their medication schedules and show better control of diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

This study was preceded by a pilot study in the fall of 2005, in which 10 individuals aged 36 to 87 years participated in a one month trial using the PDA and OnTimeRx software. Adherence for those using the PDA device exceeded 95% in almost all participants, with a 97% rate in the eldest participant.
