Using Cellular radios to provide IP connection this M2M Smart application- now the patients prescription bottle can send updates on when the medicine has been consumed and also provides alerts to the patient and the monitoring physician.
GlowCaps fit on standard prescription bottles and use light then sound reminders then a phone call or text message so people don’t miss a dose. Every time the pill bottle is opened the GlowCaps securely sends data to Vitality using the AT&T cellular network via Telit’s module. Daily adherence information is used to compile periodic progress reports that are emailed to patients, caregivers and doctors. Using sophisticated pattern recognition, Vitality uncovers the key motivational levers for each individual, and then tailors programs to activate these levers and break through whatever barriers exist. GlowCaps can also automatically refill prescriptions as pills deplete. ?
