The first medication adherence system that operates with its own dedicated radio communications system, cue-Rx™ attracted attention earlier this month when it was launched at the National Association for Home Care & Hospice Expo in Dallas, TX.
With more than a dozen active trials currently underway, cue-Rx™ begins with an automated device that alerts patients and delivers their prescription at the exact time they should be taking their medication, in their actual prescription container. The cue-Rx™ carousel turns, opens to the correct pill bottle compartment and allows the patient to take their medication as prescribed – right from the original pill bottle. cue-Rx™ provides timely phone, text, and email alerts to clinicians, caregivers, and families in order to quickly identify non-adherent patients. cue-Rx™ is designed for patients at hospitals, in home-care, assisted living facilities, senior living facilities, and continued care retirement communities. The device is also designed for home use – to improve medication adherence long-term, allowing more patients to stay home longer living comfortably and safely.
