Smart pillbox reminds patients when to take medication

‘Smart’ pillboxes track medication intake and send reminders to patients via text messages, phone calls, or e-mails. Some can automatically order prescription refills, send alerts when medication is missed, and update care teams and healthcare providers with data on patient compliance.

And how does this work? Special sensors are installed in medicine dispensers that record important data regarding intake-time, dosage, and application method. These devices then transmit automated messages to caregivers about usage and to pharmacies alerting them when medicines run low.

“The Internet of Things can be viewed as one of the strongest enablers of patientcentred healthcare, where healthcare systems are being urged to shift away from the ‘diagnose and cure’ model, to the ‘sense and prevent’ model,” said Sherry Zameer, Senior Vice President Telecommunication Solutions at Gemalto.

The smart pill dispenser is developed by MedMinder, with secure connectivity enabled by Gemalto’s M2M technology and backed by its advanced digital security solutions.

“This advanced mHealth (mobile health) device reminds patients to take their medication on time through visual, auditory, or SMS alerts. It also tracks medication intake, sends medical alerts to caregivers, and can be used to line up refills. The dispenser’s wireless connectivity feature safeguards the independence of patients, while providing relatives and caregivers peace of mind via remote monitoring tools,” said Zameer.
