Heart Transplant Patient Reports Significant Results With Medication and Treatment Compliance Using the ALRT500 Home Health Management System

ALR Technologies to Begin Marketing to Organ Transplant Programs in U.S.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC–(MARKET WIRE)–Oct 23, 2006 — ALR Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB:ALRT.OB – News) announces a heart transplant patient utilizing the ALRT health management compliance reminder and monitoring system is achieving significant success with compliance to her complex medication and treatment schedule. The patient is a heart transplant patient who began the pilot in February 2006, and the first transplant patient within the Missouri Medicaid Program to use the ALRT500 system. The complexity of the individual’s regimen had been causing significant stress for the patient and her family and timing of administration is so crucial to the health of the patient. Missed medications and treatments or even lateness of administration can result in adverse affects and complications. Losing a transplanted organ has the obvious health effects with the patient as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional costs to health insurance providers.

Noncompliance is widespread in recipients of life-sustaining organs and is particularly tragic after heart transplantation due to the life-saving nature of the procedure. Patients who are noncompliant with transplant medications have lower anti-rejection drug levels, more acute rejection, and more chronic graft loss and medication noncompliance is a leading cause of morbidity in pediatric transplant recipients. According to Dr. William Lorentz, Associate Chief of Staff at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, noncompliance is a contributor to transplant failure. “One of the primary reasons that transplanted organs fail is due to patient noncompliance with the medications and treatments.”

The patient, Elaine, whose diagnoses include heart transplant, renal insufficiency, blood clot in her left atrium and hypertension, has four different physicians prescribe her 18 medications and 8 supplements. Elaine takes meds several times daily with a different combination of drugs each time. Additionally, she takes one medication weekly and another twice weekly. It is very important that the medications be taken timely (within 15 minutes of the correct time) as some medications are designed to work in combination with or to counteract side effects of other medications. “We are so pleased to have the use of the ALRT system,” reports Jim, Elaine’s husband. “This reminder system has made our daily activities so much easier and removes the constant worry of forgetting.”

The ALRT500 electronic health management system was programmed to alert with an alarm sound and a description on the screen of the proper action to take at that time. The ALRT500 continues to alarm until Elaine or her husband press a button to silence it. After a 2 minute delay, the ALRT unit alarms again and Elaine presses the button to confirm completion of the planned action.

The ALRT system records the date and time when the action is confirmed and the compliance data for each day is made available automatically overnight via a modem to those authorized to view it. The compliance data is delivered in the form of compliance summary reports that are easily selected and customized by the viewer. Events of noncompliance are easily identified through color-coding on the reports as well as through automatic generated email alerts to those authorized. During one selected 30-day period Elaine was compliant with all programmed actions with just one exception and in this case the ALRT monitoring system showed that she did not comply within the pre-programmed 15-minute period but had taken the medication only it was outside the 15-minute prescribed time.

Bob Reed, President of PageMinder, the compliance specialty company that has provided the ALRT system to Elaine, reports the ability to review compliance remotely which allows his company to better understand behavior and enact necessary change. “The value that the system has brought to Elaine and her husband is far greater than the reminder service as this system also allowed us to identify times of day that we needed to change behavior to allow for even better compliance.”
