Taxonomy of Health IT and Medication Adherence

Mrosek, Rafael; Dehling, Tobias; Sunyaev, Ali


Background: Patients’ failure to take medication as prescribed – poor medication adherence – is a well-known issue.Health information technology (IT) presents itself as a promising approach to tackle poor medication adherence.
Objectives: To deepen the understanding of what features health IT offers and how these address poor medication adherence, we examine existing health IT targeting medication adherence.
Methods: Building on extant literature, we follow a systematic approach for taxonomy development in information systems to build a taxonomy of health IT focusing on medication adherence.
Results: Health IT offers various promising ways to address poor medication adherence. Overall, we map 16 different types of health IT offerings on 7 different dimensions. The principal results are that health IT focusing on medication adherence should be developed in a patient-centered way because medication adherence is predominantly a matter of the patient and that mobile technologies are a seminal driver for health IT offerings focusing on medication adherence. Finally, the taxonomy identifies the core impacts of health IT on medication adherence.
