Video Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) for Hepatitis C treatment
More deaths are caused by Hepatitis C each year than all other infectious diseases combined. Many providers are hesitant to prescribe HCV treatment with concerns over ongoing substance abuse, risk of reinfection, and low adherence among patients.
For a standard 12-week treatment, some hepatitis C drugs cost upwards of $70,000.
Video DOT is a cost-effective solution to ensure adherence to these life-saving treatments.
Understanding dose-by-dose adherence is essential to help patients successfully complete treatment. Video DOT is an effective tool for patients that require additional support structures.
Directly observed therapy is a proven strategy for helping patients stay adherent to medication. Video DOT empowers relationships between patients and providers that encourage patients to successfully complete treatment.
One in four patients with HCV are denied coverage upon initial request. 1 With documented and verifiable adherence data, more patients can easily obtain prior authorization for treatment.
