Recently, wireless technology has emerged as a potential tool for monitoring medication adherence in real time. This is noteworthy given the recognized association between late dose-timing and loss of viral suppression. One promising tool, the Wisepill personal medication container (Wisepill Technologies, Cape Town, South Africa), detects the exact date and time whenever the patient opens it to access medication.

Current adherence assessments typically detect missed doses long after they occur. Real-time, wireless monitoring strategies for antiretroviral therapy may provide novel opportunities to proactively prevent virologic rebound and treatment failure. Wisepill, a wireless pill container that transmits a cellular signal when opened, was pilot tested in ten Ugandan individuals for 6 months. Read More...
Sub-optimal antiretroviral adherence is a serious problem among people living with HIV (PLWH) that can lead to virologic rebound, resistance to medication regimens, and poor health outcomes. Emerging technologies allow for the detection of potential missed doses in real time as a possible point of intervention. Using these sensory technologies, this test of concept intervention trial was designed to target possible missed doses and initiate just-in-time self-regulation adherence counseling..... Read more
Type 2 diabetes Research published : a study of the effects of Real-Time Medication
Of patients who get SMS reminders if they forget their medication, 16% take more of their medication than patients in the control group. The Wisepill real time dispenser and Web application was used to conduct this important study. Read more...
