Echo: Removing barriers to medical adherence

Echo: Removing barriers to medical adherence

with Stephen Bourke, Co-founder

Getting medicine into people’s hands is not easy. Encouraging patients to stick to their medication can be even trickier. Can the psychological obstacles patients face be solved with an app?

Echo is an online repeat prescription service determined to answer that question. As the original end-user of his very own product, co-founder Stephen Bourke has been on the front lines of their mission to simplify pharmacy. In this episode we discuss how design bleeds into all facets of his business and why convenience really is the key to medical adherence.
