The pillphone® is the only FDA-cleared application for medication adherence and patient engagement. It provides a biometrically secured mobile communication system between patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals.
The pillphone® increases patient education, supports chronic conditions, increases medication adherence, and avoids non-urgent use of ER. The secure communication platform increases staff productivity by allowing the medical team to remotely monitor and support patients outside the walls of the physician’s office, pharmacy, or hospital.
