Improving medication adherence
Almost half of all adults take a repeat prescription, but 40% of medication isn’t taken as directed. This costs the NHS billions in waste each year. Echo’s mission is to remove the barriers to adherence through elegant, user-focused design & technology.
What matters most to us
Our co-founders both take medication to manage long-term conditions, so Echo is first and foremost a patient-led service.
We respect our patients’ autonomy, privacy and concerns. We listen and never take them for granted.
We recognise that clear communication is crucial. We’re transparent and responsible, committed to ensuring patients are informed.
We follow strict data management protocols. We always encrypt data sent and received online and adhere by the Caldicott principles.
We’re committed to delivering best-in-class patient experience. From our user interfaces to home delivery.
