AdhereTech smart wireless pill bottles are currently being used by patients in pharmaceutical and research engagements. These bottles collect and send all adherence data in real-time. The system automatically analyzes this information and populates the data on our secure dashboard. If doses are missed, patients can receive customizable alerts and interventions – using automated phone calls, text messages, and more.
AdhereTech smart wireless pill bottle sends notification message to the patient as well as to any caregivers they have, so there’s always someone who can account for the use, or misuse, of pills.
During the window of time that the patient needs to take medication, the bottle’s small light indicators glow blue, and if the bottle isn’t opened, they turn red and beep to remind the patient to take the pills. If the medicine isn’t taken, the patient receives a phone call or text message alert as an additional reminder.
- Works the moment the patient receives it: Bottles automatically connect and send data with zero set-up (no assembly, downloads, or syncing required).
- Used exactly like a regular pill bottle: It’s intuitive and patients don’t need to learn new processes.
- Simple for patients of any age or tech-savviness: Messages are sent to patients and/or caregivers via landline, cell phone, and/or smart phone – with optional on-bottle alerts.
The bottle can hold about double the capacity of the standard-sized pill bottle, and according to CEO Josh Stein, the company wanted the final product to look like an expensive medical device. It has flat sides, making it easy for pharmacists to stick prescription labels on it, and the company made it in a kind of oval shape so it would be super easy to grip for elderly patients.
The pill bottle’s design is also directly related to its function — Stein says that at first, it wasn’t easy to get the sensors that control the bottle into the product. They finally came up with this form factor, one that holds capacitive sensors at the base of the bottle and on its inner walls to detect and measure exactly how much medication is removed each time it’s opened. That’ll come in handy not only if a patient didn’t take their pills, but also if they took too many.
