Eureka Park Preview: MediPense Is Bringing Digital Health To The Aging Population Starting With The RxPense
The future of healthcare looks brighter and brighter thanks to technology. Over the last four years, the Internet of Things, has entered the healthcare market in unprecedented ways. There are connected blood pressure cuffs, glucometers, scales, thermometers, and more. There are monitors for everything imaginable when it comes to health. Heck, you can monitor your vital signs with your Apple Watch.
A Canadian company called MediPense Inc, is bringing digital health to the aging population. They’re starting with the most intelligent, secure and automatic pill dispenser, called RxPense.
Baby boomers and folks even older than that generation are starting to embrace technology, even if it can be a little scary. They’re also starting to realize that technology is making advancements in healthcare that mean that even geriatric patients can stay on their own, longer. RxPense is one of those technologies.
The RxPense pill dispenser was designed from the beginning to keep patients and their care givers in sync. The device is easy to read and easy to set up. The pill dispenser ensures that seniors, chronic care patients, disabled veterans and just about anyone, takes the correct amount of medications on time, Medications are dispensed as needed and according to the patients schedule.
“RxPense® automates the dispensing of weekly multidose blister-packaged medications such as DisPill™, Distrimedic™, Eco-Pill™ and others, though a patented process, and significantly reduces the risk of medication non-adherence.” the company says on their website.
When it’s time to take medication the device gives off several kinds of alerts including visual, audio and vibration. If for some reason the patient doesn’t take their correct medication at the correct time a care giver, loved one, pharmacist or doctor can be notified.
The connected RxPense Pill Dispenser accurately records and documents the consumption of PRN (as needed) and OTC medications. It can also be connected to other sensors that monitor vital signs and store records to the patients electronic medical record (EMR).
Through the RxPense Hub, patients can communicate directly through video chat with their care-giver. It also features some of the most advanced security like biometric, facial recognition and even RFID.
RxPense even incorporates an emergency information support system where first responders can use the device to learn vital information about the patient like if they’re diabetic, under a doctor’s care, blood type and more.
