You can’t miss your pills if you’re on AT&T

That’s right! AT&T of the U.S. has announced launching it’s medication adherence tool!

“The AT&T-connected GlowCaps fit on standard prescription bottles and use light then sound reminders, which can be followed by a phone call or text message so people don’t miss a dose. Each time the pill bottle is opened adherence data is recorded and securely relayed to Vitality over the AT&T wireless network. This daily adherence information is used to compile periodic progress reports that are sent to patients, caregivers and doctors, and family members.” – AT&T

I wonder if this service can be affordable by all patients and whether the coverage it good. Wish we had our mobile carriers here do the same 🙂
