PillPack Another startup aimed at helping individuals take their medications properly, PillPack goes as far as to send patient's prescriptions already organized in individual blister packs. For elderly patients or those taking a large number of medications daily, trying to sort them out and organize them all can be frustrating. Also, the more medications a patient is prescribed, the harder it can be to juggle the correct dosage and time for each pill.

To help solve this issue, PillPack sends patients their prescription drugs pre-sorted in easy-to-open blister packs, rather than individual pill bottles. Forbes quotes a 2006 study that found sending pills to patients in blister packs improved medication adherence from 61 percent to 97 percent. Each blister pack lists the date and time it should be taken, so that patients can take their medication and get on with their day.
