Following a strict medicine regimen can be difficult for most people, but failing to take the right dosage of medications at the right time of day can be detrimental. AdhereTech has created a smart wireless pill bottle that can analyze the patient’s usage to see if they miss dosages and then send alerts to the user via their smartphone.
What makes this startup's smart wireless pill bottle unique is its potential to help improve clinical trials and research to get medications on to the market faster. It's already been tested to improve medication adherence for those diagnosed with HIV by helping patients manage the large number of medications they need to take each day. It can take some of the confusion and human error out of the process when it comes to treating diseases that require prescription cocktails.
