Eski tech is developing RemindMe, an automatic medicine dispenser for dosage packed medicine.
The purpose of medication is to improve the health of the people that take them. They improve people’s lives and can in many cases even save them.
For medication to be effective people have to take them according to their doctors advice.
Unfortunately only about 50 % of people take their medicine correctly. This is an international health problem and its consequences can be severe and costly.
It is estimated that patients who don’t take their medicine as prescribed, cost the US healthcare system about $290 billion in avoidable medical spending each year.
Today the problem is partly solved with dosage packed medicine. Allthough this solution is helpful it is not sufficient.
With RemindMe we intend to increase medical compliance and thereby increase people’s quality of life and in the mean time save billions of dollars for the healthcare system.
