Personalized medication dispensing solutions offer valuable support for patients who struggle with medication adherence. As reported by the NCBI, more than half of patients fail to adhere to their prescribed medical regimens, and this non-adherence contributes to over 10% of all hospital admissions, resulting in 125,000 fatalities annually, while imposing an annual economic burden ranging from USD 100 billion to USD 289 billion.
Consequently, IoT-enabled medication dispensers are gaining increasing prominence. Smart pill dispensers are equipped with connected sensors to offer real-time tracking and monitoring of medication usage, effectively mitigating instances of missed doses. 1NCE's collaboration with over 250 healthcare clients provides compelling evidence of the IoT's increasing relevance in this specialized domain, especially when applied to connected medical dispensers. This underscores the significant role of IoT technology in this particular use case.
