Smart pill boxes keep a record of the amount of pills consumed by the patients, their timings, as well as services provided in a stipulated time period. They act as a pill organizer and reminder that deals with sorting huge number of pills each day. They use text, phone-call, light and sound to remind people to take medicines. Smart pill boxes are mainly connected to blood glucose monitors and blood pressure monitors. They are largely used in retirement homes and hospitals across the world.
Smart pill boxes and bottles are preferred over traditional pills technology owing to better patient compliance and statistics on poor medical adherence in the past.
