The Problem

During illness or caregiving situations, managing medication intake can be challenging, especially when medications are taken at irregular intervals or during odd hours. Patients and caregivers often struggle to keep track of when medication was last taken, leading to confusion, missed doses, or accidental double-dosing.

Traditional methods of medication management, such as handwritten schedules or mental notes, are often unreliable and prone to errors, particularly in stressful or hectic situations. Other options may involve technology that may be too complex to some users or expensive. As a result, patients may experience suboptimal medication adherence.

For pharmaceutical companies and healthcare providers, ensuring effective medication adherence among their consumers is essential for maintaining trust and loyalty. However, existing solutions for medication tracking may not adequately address the unique challenges faced by individuals during illness or caregiving scenarios.
