In 2015, the founders of Careanimations, Dr. Rob Neeter and Dr. Afke de Jong, were concerned about the continuous and structural lack of medication adherence.
With as many as 30-50% of adults not taking their medicines correctly or not at all, they knew something had to change. They aimed to find a simple solution to a complex problem that must be usable for all, including people with limited health literary, low digital skills, or with a hearing or vision impairment.
Creating clear, easy-to-understand medication videos
We’re committed to improve quality of life for all patients by helping them to make better use of their medicines
As a starting point, we took the complicated, jargon-heavy information in the package leaflet and turned it into, easy-to-access and easy-to-understand animated videos.
Patients can watch the most important information about their medicine at home, in a language of their own choice, and tailored for their gender, age and reason of use.
Designed to support pharmacies
Pharmacies can offer our platform to their patients, not only for understandable information, but also for automated additional support at home, after patients collected their medicine. Our platform ensures that patients are more engaged in their treatment to increase motivation and adherence.
We have deliberately chosen to collaborate with pharmacies. The pharmacist is the medication expert, is seen as a reliable source of information and could in theory reach all patients who are using medicines. Next to that, we strongly believe in the importance of a good pharmacy-patient relationship to build trust and motivation which is the basis of adherence.
