The ability to make lasting change to the health outcomes of patients and to increase the ROI on healthcare dollars is directly in the hands of pharmacists – but they need advanced adherence tools to do so. We expect that spencer’s unique brand of personalization, and the way it makes people feel to take their medications, will resonate with patients, improve medication management and adherence, and keep more patients from experiencing re-admission to hospital.

– Shane Bishop, CEO, Catalyst Healthcare Ltd.

Engaging complex patients around their medication management needs has remained elusive. spencer represents a huge opportunity to complete the ‘last mile’ of patient engagement, which paves the way for successfully implementing value based contracts.

– Jon Easter; Director, Center For Medication Optimization Through Practice And Policy; Professor of the Practice, UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy

I know that you don't often see the patients on the front line that benefit from the spencer technology. One of the patients was an elderly man who had been missing his anti-rejection meds for his kidney transplant and was at risk of losing his kidney before we got him spencer. Another lady has mild dementia due to a stroke and kept missing her anti-coagulants which put her at increased risk of having another stroke. Spencer will make a huge difference to these people’s lives and health.

– Jason Cridge, R.Ph., B.Sc. (Pharm)
Owner, Cridge Pharmacy
