MWV’s Healthcare business helps patients achieve better health by improving the way they take their medicine. We are an experienced team of experts in the design and development of health care packaging solutions, and we draw upon qualitative and quantitative proprietary research to understand the various behavioral and attitudinal components of packaging.
More than a decade ago, MWV embarked on a mission to develop a packaging solution that would address a pervasive problem facing prescription drug patients worldwide: poor medication adherence – not following medication regimens as directed. According to the New England Healthcare Institute, patients who do not follow their medication regimens cost the US healthcare system an estimated $290 billion a year, or 13% of total healthcare expenditures.
As the US health care reform debate rages on, all parties can agree on one thing: our nation’s broad health care goals, such as expanding access to health insurance, will only be achieved if we can rein in health care costs. And one of the most straightforward, proven ways to reduce costs while improving patient health is through better medication adherence.
