FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
e-pill Medication Reminder’s MD.2, receives an award for product innovation for consumer safety.
The Home Safety Council® (HSC) has presented a Commendation Award for Product Innovation for Consumer Safety based on the MD.2 Personal Medication Dispenser and Monitoring System (www.epill.com/md2.html).
The e-pill Monitored Automatic Medication Dispenser MD.2 is a medication system that organizes, reminds, dispenses and tracks all medication delivery. It is web-enabled for activity or report generation and can call caregivers, case managers or clinicians when a dose is missed. The MD.2 in total has over 3 Million dispense cycles in the database history with an astounding on-time dispense rate of 98.6%, a tremendous improvement over what is usually considered by many as a mere 50% or less compliance with prescribed drug therapy.
Boston based e-pill, LLC distributes the MD.2 Personal Medication Dispenser to address medication non-adherence issues, which the government is calling a national epidemic. Stefan Solvell, e-pill’s President and Manager states, “Patient Compliance and Medication Adherence is a growing problem across the nation. Some have called it America’s other drug problem. This is high praise for a popular e-pill dispenser from a first class organization” Solvell continues. The MD.2 is unique in its ability to address critical needs of the medication adherence cycle.”
Interactive Medical Developments (IMD), the manufacturer of the e-pill Monitored Automatic Medication Dispenser MD.2 is a recipient of the Home Safety Council’s Commendation Award for Product Innovation for Consumer Safety for the MD.2 Personal Medication Dispenser. Use of the Commendation Award logo by IMD indicates that the Council has evaluated the MD.2 based upon information furnished by the manufacturer and believes the product demonstrates an innovative use of safety features. The Council does not test or endorse any products.
