The World Health Organization has estimated that half of patients take their medications incorrectly, costing the U.S. healthcare system and consumers about $300 billion each year
Feb. 7, 2013 - PRLog -- Non-adherence to medication schedules leads to hospitalizations, surgeries and wasted medications.  Add them all up, and you are costing the economy 100's of Billions of dollars and untold costs o of pain and human suffering.  The problem more often than not is the patients’ inability to remember to take their medications or taking the incorrect amounts. The older crowd can have issues remembering some of the more basic things day in and day out let alone staying on top of juggling 3 or more medications and the proper times to take them. Visit any drug store in America and you will see there are plenty of pillboxes, pill dispensers or pill organizers for sale, however most of them are either too technical and confusing incorporating texts, or pillbox tops that have tiny screens and buttons or utilizing smart phone apps, Many are just too basic to be effective. Looking at the figures from the World Health Organization it becomes obvious that the current “solution” is not working and something better is needed.

The makers of MED-Q have created a pillbox and organizer in one that is truly the best of both worlds. A pillbox and pill dispenser system that is intuitive and easy to set up. A series of audible and visual reminders and multiple fail-safes built in makes adherence simple. These Pill boxes with built in dispensers also come with distinguishing colors and alerts for multiple users under one roof. Finally, a company truly addressing the problems of medication non-adherence in a way that makes sense for everyone, especially the elderly.
