For self-administration, compliance with drug therapy and disease management protocols has become a primary concern within the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. Autoinjectors are designed to address the patient compliance issue by making the delivery of injectable drugs less complicated and intimidating. Efforts to enhance compliance have a non-negligible effect on drug formulations and delivery decisions, and are a significant factor in the prescribing decisions of most physicians. For chronic conditions compliance has a direct effect on the patient’s quality-of-life. Injectable devices with Dose management features address the natural desire of patients for simplicity, and encourage enhanced compliance and appropriate behavior. Dose management features that are increasingly being integrated into injection devices include dose memory, dose time stamping, selectable cartridge concentration, and audible prompts. Markets include OEM devices and aftermarket add-on dose reminders.
