ActiveCare, Inc. (ACAR.OB) announced that by partnering with MedMinder, it is able to provide a new combination of monitoring services with a smart wireless pill dispenser.
“Our mission is to keep our members healthy and independent living in their own home,” said Brent Ferrin, Executive Vice President, ActiveCare. “By simply monitoring medication adherence and compliance our members will stay healthier and independent longer.”
Filled once a week and looking like a standard pill box, the MedMinder solution is easy to use and communicates directly to ActiveCare’s CareCenter. “When it’s time to take my medication the compartment lights up on the day and time, if I take the wrong cup the pill box has an audible alert and the CareCenter gives me a call,” said Ferrin.
With wide options of visual and audible alerts and wireless cellular communication to the CareCenter, in partnership with MedMinder, ActiveCare offers a solution to increase medication compliance and adherence that allows its members to remain in their own home.
“Partnering with ActiveCare is a realization of our vision of helping seniors stay independent at home,” said Eran Shavelsky, CEO of MedMinder, Inc. “ActiveCare brings a unique combination utilizing MedMinder’s products and ActiveCare’s monitoring expertise enhancing the lives of their members and their families.”
A study by the Center for Health Transformation found that 1 in 4 nursing home admissions is the result of not properly taking your medications.
