MedFolio developed a new innovative pillbox.
The features of the MedFolio device address the needs of patients, caregivers, and their healthcare providers. The unique built-in pill identification system is a portfolio of every medication stored in the device, thereby giving the patient/caregiver the confidence to engage in medication discussions with their healthcare providers. In order to help patients in remembering to take the “right dose at the right time”, advanced medication reminder systems have been incorporated into the device. The device connects to a personal computer by USB and installed software allows the patient/caregiver to easily customize the device to their specific medication regimens and dosing times. The medication information stored into the memory of the device will initiate audio alert and visual lighting reminders from the device. Additionally, the software program will communicate with a secure website to offer the option of receiving electronic messaging reminders (e-mail and text message) for each scheduled medication dosing time.
