'Smart' pillbox helps patients remember

USA Today, March 20, 2008
Doctors and pharmacists say patients and caretakers are increasingly turning to tech-based drug-tracking tools, including interactive, consumer-friendly websites, to help keep medication regimens running smoothly and reduce errors. One such device is the Med-eMonitor, a device connected to a drug database through the patient's phone line and programmed remotely via the Internet. The monitor beeps and a large-print message pops up on the display screen as a voice announces when a pill is to be taken, reminds the patient when doses are missed, and alerts them to potentially dangerous medication interactions.
