Indivior Launches App for Patients
Friday, April 22, 2016
Pharmaceutical company Indivior has introduced a free mobile app to assist in the management of patients receiving Suboxone film for opioid addiction, with versions for both patients and health professionals. It can help physicians address and engage in the management of some of the challenging aspects of this chronic condition.
The Suboxone Sublingual Film Mobile Health Library was developed with input from patients and prescribers, and includes features such as dosing reminders, symptom tracking, and access to the SUBOXONE Film savings card. Features for physicians include information on access and risk evaluation and mitigation strategies.
"With a chronic condition like opioid dependence, it's important that patients educate themselves, have a personal treatment plan that they are comfortable and engaged with and maintain open communication with their support team," said Jarod Masci, MD, Board Certified Psychiatrist and Addiction Medicine Specialist. "A mobile app with a set of features may be a way to assist patients at any stage in their treatment journey and may also help facilitate communications between both doctors and their patients as well as family members and friends."
The Mobile Health Library is available as a free download for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire devices.
