Lessons from the Trenches: Adopting Medication Technology Within Agencies Serving Older Adults – Medication Optimization Article
Drawing from findings from health service organizations in the Center for Technology and Aging's Medication Optimization Diffusion Grants Program, this article lays out the key issues for implementing technology-based programs that are intended to improve medication use by older adults. The paper looks at the diffusion of innovation, in this case the diffusion of technologies, within five different health care organizations. The authors report new information that can guide agencies aiming to implement or adapt new medication adherence technologies, as well as provide guidance to grantmakers who are trying to determine how to best support the development of technology-enabled programs.
