Supporting the use of medicines with smart dispensers

For AstraZeneca we developed smart medication dispensers with IoT. The objective: (better) monitoring of medicine use by patients and improving adherence.

AstraZeneca asked us for a smart solution to improve the use of medicines by patients. After all, medicines are only effective when people adhere to the prescribed intake.

Our IoT solution

We developed an IoT solution with a smart medication dispenser. The dispenser 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 result is our smart dispenser, Sensemedic, that both patients and healthcare professionals benefit from.

Sensemedic: the smart dispenser

With Sensemedic the adherence of each patient can be determined accurately. This allows healthcare professionals to guide and support patients more specifically: working from the existing behavior towards a better intake pattern.

Smart reminding

With Sensemedic it is possible to remind patients to take their medicines with methods that use the real time measuring data. Thus, a patient can be reminded with a text message, whereby the text message is only sent when a patient actually forgets to take his or her medicine. This method has proven to be highly effective.

Increased adherence and lower healthcare costs

There are three factors that lead to an increased adherence where people recover better and faster: A better understanding in behaviors, better supervision and automatic reminders. This also leads to lower healthcare costs.

Ground-breaking

  • Monitoring the use of medicines by patients remotely
  • Accurate insight into using medicines
