People neglect to take their pills for a number of different reasons, and this prescription rewards app aims tackle all of these problems. With one smartphone app, the makers of HealthPrize discourage apathy and aid with memory so that everyone ends up in better shape at the end of the day.

West Pharmaceutical Services has teamed up with this company to provide a reliable way to record and account for the administration and the consumption of all medications: from capsules and liquid elixirs to inhalers and personal injections. Reminders can be set up for those who are forgetful, and notifications serve to encourage the indifferent. For the somewhat reluctant patients, a game-based system allows the person to accrue points on his account, giving him value back.
