MedMinder's pill dispenser increases medication compliance by over 90%, giving the elderly, chronically ill and those with disabilities the opportunity to regain their independence and provide peace of mind for family and caregivers.

MedMinder’s revolutionary automatic pill dispenser, Maya, is the next step forward in medication adherence and medication management. Proven to increase medication adherence by over 90%, MedMinder gives the elderly, chronically ill and those with disabilities the opportunity to regain their independence and prodive peace of mind for family and caregivers.

MedMinder has given freedom back to many seniors and their families through the use of the MedMinder pill dispenser system. Seniors who are easily confused or often forget to take their medications have no problems using the MedMinder automated pillbox, as it is simply an update to a familiar household item.

MedMinder’s electronic medication dispenser, Maya, is a radical departure from traditional medication adherence regimens. Traditional medication schedules often rely on the patient’s ability to remember their medications, or on frequent reminders from family or caregivers. The MedMinder pill dispenser helps to improve quality of life for patients and their families by allowing remote setting and monitoring of medication dosing. Patients can avoid long-term care facilities and regain their independence while family members rest easy knowing that medications are being taken on time and in the right dosage.

The MedMinder automated medication dispenser is easy to use and set up. Visual and auditory reminders clearly mark which medication should be taken and when. When it is time for dosing, the correct compartment flashes repeatedly until the medication is taken. If the pill cup is not removed for an extended period of time then progressively louder beeps will sound. If the medication is still not taken, then a phone call, email or text message can be sent home and to the caregiver.

Utilizing internal cellular communication technology, MedMinder's pill dispenser sends notifications to the selected residence and caregiver(s) via phone, email or text message (no Internet connection is required). Both visual and auditory notifications are delivered straight from the pillbox to inform that it is now time for medication. All notifications and reminders can be adjusted online to suit personal preferences.

MedMinder (http://www.medminder.com) provides online services where family members and caregivers can track the timeliness and frequency of dosing, choose which notifications they would like to receive and set times for medications to be taken. Full report histories include what time dosing occurred, if an incorrect compartment was opened and if an unscheduled refill took place.

MedMinder’s customers have been thrilled with the Maya system:

“Honestly, [the MedMinder] system has given my father the ability to live independently while I can keep an eye on him. I have control of the dispensing of the medicine as I fill up the cups for each week on Saturday morning. Should he not take the medicine as expected within the given time window – I receive a text and can check up on him immediately. When I call, he is very pleased that I reminded him and thanks me for caring so much. He is now in much better health. His doctor appointments are simply routine. No hospital visits required.”

–Mary Beth

MedMinder is proud to help seniors and their families return their lives back to normal. Using the MedMinder electronic medication dispenser has helped some customers turn back the clocks by years and given them a new lease on life:

“[The] MedMinder pill dispensing system has changed my mother's life. She had developed memory issues that were making it impossible for her to manager her medicines. She was missing doses or doubling up. She could not remember if she had had her prescriptions refilled or not. She was exhibiting all kinds of symptoms the doctors could not figure out. After installing the system and having her medication under control almost all of her symptoms are gone. Its like we have rolled back the clock by five years or better. Best of all, this allows her to keep her independence. Anyone who has a senior loved one living alone should have this device.”
