PillDrill Uses RFID to Bring Peace of Mind
The system is designed to simplify medication adherence for patients, and to reassure caregivers and loved ones.
Explaining what inspired him to create the PillDrill system, Peter Havas, the company's founder and CEO, says his goal was "staying connected with my octogenarian parents on the other side of the world (Australia) and having peace of mind knowing that they are taking their important medication." The company cites a review of scientific literature showing that poor medication adherence causes 10 percent of hospital admissions annually in the United States, and costs more than $100 billion in avoidable health-care spending.phase has meant that the current version of the product still has a very good lifespan."
The company's website sells a complete PillDrill kit, consisting of the PillDrill Hub, 12 RFID tags, two weekly pill organizers (one for mornings, the other for evenings) and a Mood Cube, for $199. Currently, the PillDrill kit can be purchased only at the company's website, but it is expected to be made available at the website of pharmaceutical retailer CVS by early 2017.
