Digital Pharma, a community of conferences aimed at healthcare improvement, posted an article connecting technology and patient adherence, which also featured GeckoCap. The Digital Pharma Blog showcased new technology aimed at increasing adherence and overcoming medication forgetfulness.
“Do you often find yourself asking a loved one “did you remember to take your medicines today?” Maybe it even slipped your mind to take that daily medication prescribed by your own physician.”
“Forgetfulness is usually the reason why we neglect to take necessary medications. More often than not, however, patients with chronic illnesses who are on a large regimen of pills find it difficult to keep track of their medications. Others just get caught up in the hustle and bustle of their hectic schedules and innocently forget their required doses.”
“Other medication adherence solutions were presented at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show. GeckoCap, geared to children on inhalation medication for asthma, uses a smart cap and app to track inhaler use. It also gamifies the process to keep the kids engaged so they keep up with their medication schedule.”
