Garth Sutherland, CEO of Adherium Ltd, tells Mike Ward, global director of content of Informa's pharma insights portfolio, about Adherium's endeavor in the digital health space. Sutherland outlines how the B2B digital health company, listed in Australia last year, is selling its Smartinhaler technology to big pharma, hospitals and disease management companies. The platform itself is made up of a cloud-based server that harbors data collected by Adherium's Smartinhaler, a medical device that records drug usage and can be clipped onto any prescribed inhaler used to treat asthma and COPD. Not only can the patient view the data collected on their smart phone or tablet, it can also be accessed by the patient's medical providers. Moreover, along with the data collection, the device provides patients with audio and visual reminders to take their medication.
