An automatic medication management system for independently living healthcare patients
Many healthcare patients are required to enroll in assisted living facilities because they are not able to manage their complex medication regimen without the active assistance of a caregiver. This restricts their ability to live independently, and places a considerable burden on the healthcare system. This thesis describes the development of a system that implements automatic medication management and passive remote monitoring for outpatients. The goal of the system is to enable patients to live independently, while reducing medication noncompliance. The resulting prototype is a device that performs two essential functions: (1) to provide notifications and assistance to the patient when medication is to be taken, and (2) to provide passive monitoring of the patient's compliance to a remote caregiver.
