A Programmable, Automated Medication Dispenser

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 700,000 emergency room visits and 120,000 hospitalizations result each year because people either miss their medications, take the wrong dose, or suffer an adverse reaction from taking the wrong combination of drugs.

Why? Memory challenges, poor vision, and difficulty telling the difference between pills are just a few of the many issues. That’s why Northwood Intouch offers this automatic medication dispenser.

Medication Dispensing Systems – How Do They Work?

Our modern medication dispenser holds 28 doses of medication. Fill the unit’s storage compartments with medications, program it to dispense the correct doses at the appropriate times of the day, and lock the unit for security.

Modern dispensing systems are designed keeping in mind the real-world scenarios and how they can accommodate the caregiver in their patient care. Caregiving can be a highly demanding job, therefore for their well-being, the carer needs to have some time apart from the patient.  This is where a dispensing system comes in and allows both the caregiver and the patient to have more freedom and liberty without compromising on their medical needs.

Automatic Medication Dispenser FAQS

You might need an automatic pill dispenser to maintain your elderly family member’s medication schedule properly. As we all know that medication adherence is extremely essential when it comes to treating life-threatening conditions. It not only reduces the hassle but also provides the patient and their family peace of mind.

The automatic pill dispenser uses alarm alerts to notify your loved one about their medication up to 4 times per day(according to their medication dose). 

Healthcare professionals recommend the automatic pill dispenser to patients that have cognitive disabilities, experience forgetfulness, and live independently so they do not miss out on their daily medication.

Healthcare providers have also incorporated these dispensers in their healthcare plans to streamline medication management for their patients.

Deciding between a pill organizer or an automatic pill dispenser will depend upon several factors.

Dosettes and blister packaging are both options for pill organizing.

A dosette is a container with compartments to organize pills by day of the week and is done at home.  They can be purchased at the local pharmacy and are low cost options for simple medication schedules.  

For multiple medications at different times of day, pharmacies offer blister packaging that pre-measure medications for clients.  Medications are organized by day and time that make it easy to keep track of doses. 

If medications need to be taken at very specific times of day or there is a history or forgetting doses, then having an automated medication dispenser will help.  

Not necessarily. While the device does alarm and let the user know it’s time to take their medications, the client needs to understand and know how to respond to the alarm in order for it to be a good solution.  They must also want to be compliant with their medications. If they do not want to take certain medications, this device can not overcome that.
