Julie Mason from Medfolio chats with Health Tech Weekly guest host Chris Montera about how she started the program and product development for the the medication reminder system. She’s a pharmacist who worked for many years with the Veterans Administration. In the past she has spent time working with patients on medication adherence and going into their homes to help them develop tools to remember their pills.

Basic Pill Box Enters 21st Century

The Medfolio system is build around a basic pillbox system because that is something consumers are familiar with. The device has been upgraded to the 21st century with built in software that allows patients or caregivers to enter medications and times into the system. When it’s time for a medication, that compartment will light up in the box and an alert chime will sound.

When coupled with an online reporting system, the Medifolio Medication Reminder device can trigger email or text alerts to both the patient and their caregivers.

Dr. Eric, the Medical Director for Grandcare Systems, joins Health Tech Weekly guest host Chris Montera to talk about this in-home tele health monitoring device. It was initially created for increased socialization opportunities for shut-in populations among the elderly. As the technology was continuously developed, there was an opportunity to begin to collect health and medical data using the system.

Using that information from the patient’s home gives caregivers and medical providers more opportunities to treat problems among the aging population of users before these problems become serious. Even when the patient is not seen in the doctor’s office, they can be safely and effectively monitored from a distance by family and health professionals.
