Medisafe iConnect

Medication management platform Medisafe and TimerCap have jointly announced Medisafe iConnect, a portfolio of Bluetooth-enabled, low-cost connected devices paired with Medisafe’s software, as well as the pre-sale of the first two products, iCap and iSort.

iCap is a smart cap that fits most standard pill bottles dispensed with prescriptions in the U.S., while iSort is a weekly pill organizer for people taking multiple medications or more complex regimens. Both products are Bluetooth-enabled and available for pre-order from Medisafe’s website with iCap’s prices starting at $19.95.

iCap is a smart cap that fits most standard pill bottles, while iSort is a weekly pill organizer.All Medisafe iConnect products will feature TimerCap-developed hardware integrated with a co-branded version of Medisafe software. This solution will allow users to have their medication intake automatically logged, with the iConnect devices transmitting signals when they are opened, while storing this information in the cloud and making it available to the user via the Medisafe mobile app.

Additionally, the iConnect products will deliver storage and sorting of medications in containers that can communicate to the Medisafe platform, along with real-time notifications to both users and their caregivers regarding missed doses, refills, and other time-sensitive medication information.

“Medisafe, the #1 rated consumer app for managing medications, combined with TimerCap’s hardware expertise and retail and e-commerce distribution to millions of satisfied customers yearly since 2009, will finally bring an affordable end-to-end medication adherence solution to market at scale,” Jon Michaeli, EVP Marketing & Business Development at Medisafe, said in a statement.

Medisafe’s medication management app provides users with a combination of reminders, motivation, social support, education and discounts to help them take their medications. On the other hand, Medisafe Providers allows healthcare professionals to see how well treatment plans are working and make any needed changes as soon as a problem is identified, helping patients avoid unnecessary doctor visits and hospitalizations.
