Charleston, SC (PRWEB) November 14, 2014
November 12, 2014: PharmRight Corporation, a healthcare technology company based in Charleston, SC, announced today that Bishop Gadsden, a continuing care retirement community located in Charleston, SC, has signed a Letter of Intent to purchase Livi devices. Livi is a fully automated home medication dispenser designed and developed by PharmRight.
PharmRight is preparing to conduct a usability test of Livi devices in the 4th quarter of 2014. The first production devices are expected to be delivered to Bishop Gadsden and other customers in Q2 2015.
Bill Park, President & CEO of PharmRight, said “Bishop Gadsden is widely regarded as one of the premier CCRCs in the country. BG was one of the first communities to learn about Livi and their team has provided valuable input on design and operation of the device. We are excited to announce their intent to make an initial purchase. We are confident that, in time, many BG residents and home care clients will become Livi users.”
PharmRight Corporation was formed in 2013 to produce devices and offer services that maximize medication adherence and allow patients to age in place. The company has developed Livi, an innovative, fully automated home medication dispenser. A new entrant to what is being called “The Internet of Things,” Livi 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. Family members and professional caregivers can be alerted via text message or e-mail if a user misses a dose or requires a re-fill. Comprehensive medication adherence reports are available via computer and mobile devices.
