Taking medication on a regular basis out of necessity can put a lot of pressure on a person, but the AdhereTech Smart Pill Bottle hopes to change all of that. It is able to track the opening and closing of the childproof cap and how much medication is removed while sending that data to doctors and pharmacists who can monitor it further.

The AdhereTech Smart Pill Bottle also alerts people when their medication needs to be taken by glowing with a blue light indicator that turns red and beeps the longer it takes. A phone call or text message alert acts as a helpful additional reminder for those who are truly forgetful or are not in the bottle's immediate vicinity.
