Smart pill bottle powered by smartphone to remind patients to take/renew their medication

Smart pill bottle powered by smartphone to remind patients to take/renew their medication

Medication non-adherence is one of the major challenges of our health care system. A web connected pill bottle is being developed. The bottles will be able to track open/close events and low fill level. Patients are able to set regular notifications for medication intake and prescription refills. Patients will be connected to their local pharmacies and can e-pay for prescription renewal and pick up their medication at their convenience. 1. Health insurance providers can identify patients with low medication adherence rate and encourage them to use smart pill bottles by covering the cost of it. 2. For clinical trials, they would be able to contact patients who are enrolled in clinical studies and remind individuals to take their medication in real time, leading to higher accuracy of clinical studies. In addition, as the result of improved adherence, clinical trials will need fewer patients in their studies due to increased accuracy. This would reduce the cost of trials as well.
