How eDOT technology is revamping the medical adherence

The pandemic brought so many hurdles and yet again a lot of evolutions as well. The electronic evolutions were one of the tops on the list. In this era adoption of electronic directly observed therapy (eDOT) technologies is gaining attraction by providing apt medical services to its patients. We cannot deny the fact that directly observed therapy, which focuses on monitoring the adherence event itself is the basis of medication the best standard way. But yes, it can be time-consuming and resource-intensive.  On the other hand, eDOT technologies allow a great scope of flexibility for clinicians and patients.  Along with that offering several other benefits as well, such as improved medication adherence and patient education.

Electronic Directly Observed Therapy

The use of a lot of digital gadgets such as mobile phones, tablets, and computers in the daily life of a person has opened gates to eDOT treatment programs for patients especially with tuberculosis or diabetes, or transplant recipients on complex immune suppressive regimens.

If we consider a live eDOT visit, the clinician as well as the patient schedule a specific day and time to meet virtually, and the clinician can watch its patients taking medicine in the right way that in real-time.  This also opens the opportunity for the clinician to ask their patient how they are feeling, check medication before being taken, and also open the scope to ask the patient directly if they are facing any side effects during the medication and also reply to any query the patient has on that particular time. Similarly, a recorded eDOT is when the patients and the clinician cannot set a particular fixed time to meet each other online, and simultaneously the patient record himself or herself while taking medication. After the recording is done the patient can share it with the clinician for the further process.

Benefits of eDOT technologies

This technology is letting the patients become more comfortable and more desirous of the video-based care that can help with medication adherence. There are a lot of patients that lack the infrastructure to be successfully taking medications and they need support.  With this the healthcare provider can also use eDOT to adjust some habits, such as taking diabetes medication with food, ensuring that transplant recipients are taking their medicine on time. Also, assuring the side effects. It can also become the best tool for a clinician for giving coaching or training to the patients.

In a lot of incidences of asthma, where the patients are especially children. eDOT can help kids to take their inhalers on time and the right way. As asthma is most chronic in kids, and the best practices of treatment rely mostly upon the medication controller.

In such revolutionary ways, eDOT is becoming a bridge between making medication adherence more effective and easier. Especially in a time where medical assistance has become more required and also more crucial to be available at anytime and anywhere.
