Wisepill Technologies was in 2007 to tackle the problem of medication nonadherence, in across countries of varied income levels. The company now markets several types and sizes of medication dispensers including “pocket sized” dispensers and larger products like the evriMED 1000. The evriMED smart pill box combines the functionality of a plastic medication box with a small-scale, battery-powered sensor and mobile data connection.
How it works
Individuals store and organize their medications in the box and get reminders when they should take their next dose. When they open the box for daily medication intake, the sensor is activated and sends a digital record of medication intake in real-time to an online adherence platform using the built-in mobile data connection.

The evriMED1000 smart pill box can be procured via the Global Drug Facility. One evriMED smart pill box kit consists of the evriMED1000C module (including battery and USB charging cable), a plastic medication box and a bundled 36-months mobile network plan for global use. The evriMED1000C module can be re-used for multiple patients; the plastic medication box can be single use or reused if properly cleaned.
