Boehringer Ingelheim and HealthPrize Expand Digital Patient Support Program

Boehringer Ingelheim and HealthPrize Technologies today announced the expansion of the RespiPoints digital support program to anyone taking one of several Boehringer Ingelheim medicines, including select medicines available in the Respimat inhaler.

Launched through an initial nine-month pilot in 2016, the RespiPoints program showed participants increased their knowledge of COPD and began following healthy habits. For example, participants showed an improved adherence in their medicines, resulting in an 85% decrease in gap days between refilling their next prescription.
