Healthcare Council members now have access to medication adherence monitoring through Automated Security Alert, Inc. (ASA) based in Munhall, Pennsylvania. By helping patients adhere to taking their medication at the right time and in the right amounts, ASA is assisting hospitals and patients by preventing hospital readmissions due to medication nonadherence. Healthcare Council and ASA have entered into a business partnership which provides members with access to ASA. The goal of the partnership is to improve patient satisfaction and help hospitals reduce not just readmissions but also hospital admissions, emergency room visits and observational stays related to medication mismanagement.
