Improving Adherence

In recent years, Therakind has identified further market gaps where there is a lack of products which address the needs of specific populations, e.g. the elderly and those with chronic or rare diseases. This is generally observable where patients are unable to adhere to the medical regimen.

It is estimated that between a third and a half of prescribed and dispensed medicines (e.g. capsules, tablets, liquids, ointments and inhalers etc) are not used as recommended. Non-adherence and underuse of medicines represents a loss to patients, the healthcare system and society at large.

Thus, our focus has expanded to speciality products per se.
