ActiveCare, Inc. is a service leader in care for the elderly, disabled or chronically ill, allowing its members to live independently longer. The company’s solution incorporates sensor technologies that allow members to be constantly monitored both in their own home and on the go.

The company announced today the addition of breakthrough technology for medication adherence as part of its comprehensive ActiveHome Monitoring System. Partnering with MedMinder, ActiveCare’s combination of monitoring services with a smart wireless pill dispenser, offers a comprehensive approach to medication compliance.

Filled once a week and looking like a standard pill box, the MedMinder solution is easy to use and communicates directly to ActiveCare’s Care Center. The technology offers a wide range of visual and audible alerts. For instance, when it’s time to take a specific medicine, that particular compartment will light up. Or if a member grabs the wrong pill, there will be an audible alert and the Care Center will give that person a call.

This is an important and growing business. According to a study by the Center for Health Transformation, 1 in 4 nursing home admissions is the result of not properly taking medications. This new service from ActiveCare should help to alleviate this problem.
