Over the past several years, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, we have been privileged to be involved in a wide range of innovation, evaluations, and other initiatives regarding TB treatment adherence, patient-centered observation, and adherence and outcomes-enhancing differentiated care. In fulfillment of our global access obligations, and to facilitate efforts by others to build upon our efforts, we are making available a number of resources assembled and insights gained in our work to date. The following types of information are readily accessible and available for download on our website (http://thearcadygroup.com/resources/):
Relevant published information: including (i) published studies regarding adherence, adherence in TB, and available adherence technologies, (ii) published protocols and similar information on ongoing studies and evaluations involving adherence technologies, and (iii) guidelines and other publications from the WHO and others relating to these adherence topics,
Presentations: including presentations made on these adherence topics at recent Gates Grand Challenges meetings, WHO and Union Lung meetings, and other adherence-related conferences,
Adherence technology “tool-kits”: including (i) technical specifications, quality assurance methodologies, and field testing protocols for TB-appropriate digital medication monitors, (ii) training and other “how-to” resources on implementation and use of adherence technologies in resource-limited settings, and (iii) information on how to procure or obtain additional information regarding two specific adherence technologies – 99DOTS (from Everwell Health), and the evriMED digital medication monitors (from Wisepill Technologies), and
Miscellaneous additional information on these adherence topics: including blogs and other insights-related posts, special reports, videos, testimonials, and press releases.
For convenience, we have organized these materials into categories and have built in a filter mechanism to facilitate quick access to resources by users. In all events, for additional information feel free to contact The Arcady Group at the “Contact Us” section of our website.
