Research Institution
Project Abstract Concordance Health Solutions (CHS) is an Indiana company with a mission to improve patient medication adherence in partnership with pharmacists and other healthcare providers. With this SBIR grant, CHS will develop and test an innovative product, the SMARxT Med Reminder (SMR) Plus system, which will extend the capability of the inexpensive SMARxT Med Reminder cap developed with a previous NIH SBIR grant. The SMARxT cap is wirelessly programmed at the pharmacy with the patient's prescriptioninstructions and dispensed with the original prescription package. The SMARxT cap gives the patient visual and audible cues when a dose is due, and it records each time the cap is removed as a proxy for when a dose is taken. The SMR Plus system will upload the data captured in the SMARxT cap to a web-based application to share information back to patients, caregivers and healthcare partners. CHS will design the SMR Plus system and partner with TrueRx to design an electronic interface and test the SMR Plus
