Abstract:

THE INCREASING AGE OF THE POPULATION AND CHANGING POLICIES ON REIMBURSEMENT FOR HOSPITALIZATION HAVE SHIFTED RESPONSIBILITY FOR A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF CLINICAL CARE TO PATIENTS AND FAMILIES. THESE CHANGES ARE CREATING A NEED FOR INEXPENSIVE, EASILY USED PRODUCTS TO SUPPORT THE DELIVERY OF NURSING SERVICES INTO HOME ENVIRONMENTS. THIS PROPOSAL INVOLVES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DRUG DISPENSING SYSTEM TO CONTROL THE ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATIONS TO PATIENTS AT HOME. THIS BEDSIDE SYSTEM WILL DELIVER DRUGS ON A PRESCRIBED SCHEDULE, ALERT THE PATIENT, ACCOMMODATE CHANGES IN PRESCRIPTION SCHEDULES, PROTECT AGAINST OVERDOSES AND THEFT, AND MAINTAIN A LOG OF PATIENT COMPLIANCE FOR TRANS-TELEPHONIC TRANSMISSION TO A NURSING CENTER. THIS AUTOMATIC DRUG DISPENSER WILL BE USED IN MANY CLINICAL AREAS AS A STAND-ALONE DEVICE AND WILL LATER BECOME A MODULE OF A MORE COMPREHENSIVE HOME PHASE I WILL INCLUDE A STUDY TO DEVELOP A DESIGN CONCEPT AND TO CONSTRUCT AND TEST PROTOTYPE DEVICES, AND A CLINICAL EVALUATION PROGRAM. THE RESULTS OF PHASE I WILL PROVIDE THE DATA NECESSARY TO EVALUATE THE CONCEPT AND SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE FEATURES, AND ALSO TO DEVELOP SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE DESIGN OF A MARKETABLE PRODUCT.
