PharmRight Corporation was formed in 2013 to produce devices and offer services that maximize medication adherence and keep patients at home. The Company has developed an innovative, Internet-connected, automated medication dispenser presently known as PharmMateTM. A new entrant to what is being called “The Internet of Things,” PharmMateTM is designed to simulate the supervision of an on-site caregiver by prompting the user to take the right medication…at the right time…in the right quantity…with the right instructions under the Internet-enabled remote oversight of a caregiver or a team of caregivers. A cloud application monitors and captures all user interactions with the device. Caregivers, including doctors, nurses and pharmacists, can be alerted via text messages or e-mail if a patient skips a dose. Comprehensive medication adherence reports are available via computer and mobile devices.
