Improve medication adherence
emocha improves medication adherence using video technology and human engagement. We leverage a CDC-endorsed model called Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) where healthcare workers watch patients take every dose of medication, monitor side effects, and provide critical support.
Radically Improve Medication Adherence
Increase adherence to maximize HEDIS/STAR quality and reimbursement measures, support value-based arrangements, and lower costs.
Clinically validated technology
Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) is the most effective way to ensure medication adherence.1 By digitizing the process with video DOT, emocha has made this practice more accessible and scalable. Public health departments and academic medical centers have evaluated emocha with support from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute.

Improve health outcomes and reduce costs
Measures such as medication possession ratios do not account for actual nonadherence. emocha identifies costly members with high possession but low dose-by-dose adherence. Improving dose-by-dose medication adherence can help patients achieve improved clinical outcomes and help plans meet quality measure targets while reducing costs.
Patients get better faster & public health resources go further
emocha is the leader in video DOT, used by public health departments around the U.S. and world. Research shows that emocha saves public health departments nearly $1,400 per patient, compared to in-person DOT. Care teams and patients believe that emocha is a flexible, convenient, and patient-centric compliment to traditional treatment methods.
Improve medication adherence and patient communication
emocha is an tool for providers to efficiently communicate with patients, assess their condition remotely, and support them throughout treatment. Use emocha for a daily video check-in with patients to manage medications and prevent costly health consequences. Providers can receive Medicare reimbursement for reviewing recorded videos sent by their patients.
Support for better medication adherence and health
Patients download the emocha app, get paired with an Adherence Coach, and form adherence habits through a daily video submission. Adherence Coaches build relationships and engage with patients, review videos, and escalate side effects and medication reconciliation issues.
