AstraZeneca asked us for a smart solution to improve the use of medicines by patients. Poor adherence or non-adherence to medications includes all patients who do not commence their prescribed therapy at all, discontinue it prematurely, or take their medications in doses or frequencies different from the prescribing clinician’s recommendations. We developed a smart medication dispenser that monitors the intake behavior of patients remotely. The real-time information that is collected by the dispenser, makes it possible for healthcare professionals to guide and support patients more specifically by working from the existing behavior towards a better intake pattern.

The problem

Many patients find it difficult to take their medication according to the schedule that the doctor has given them. If the schedules for the medications are irregular, breaks are inserted or there are many different types of medication to be taken, adherence can be very challenging. Hospital staff and caregivers also did not have the right tools or data to track and analyze the medication intake of their patients. We can find many devices in the market with the goal to improve therapy adherence. However, a simple smart dispenser with an alarm that alerts patients when it is time to take their medication is not enough: a combination of remembering the medication intake and support from healthcare professionals is needed. Evalan has developed an IoT solution that helps those patients to adhere to their medication intake with multilateral support: Sensemedic.

Extra details

Smart reminding

Each time a patient opens the smart dispenser, a signal is sent to the Sensemedic server. When a patient forgets to take the medicine, the patient is reminded via a text message. Only when the patient has forgotten a pill, a text message is sent. These text messages are automatically sent within one hour of the elapsed intake time. This method has proven to be highly effective.
