Smart solutions for blister packs and kit boxes for medication adherence monitoring in clinical trials

Smart Packaging – Intelligent Tool for Therapy Control

Adherence to medication regimens is critical to the success of a clinical trial. However, up to 50 percent of study participants do not adhere to the prescribed dosing regimen. The consequences are inaccurate results and delayed market introduction. Schreiner MediPharm's smart packaging solves this challenge and increases medication adherence in clinical trials: Integrated electronics, sensor technology and NFC technology turn standard medication packaging into smart blister wallets and smart kit boxes, for example for vials, syringes or pens. Combined with the appropriate software this results in a modern tool to electronically measure, document and analyze prescribed medications.

Real-Time Data Acquisition with NFC or Bluetooth

As soon as the drug is removed from the packaging, data such as time of removal, dose or cavity are automatically generated in real time and stored in the packaging. Data is transferred to a database via NFC or Bluetooth centrally in the study clinic or by the patient via smartphone app.

Illustration shows the process of real-time data acquisition with NFC or Bluetooth in digital therapy control.
The doctor checks on the smartphone that the medication is being taken correctly from the tablet blister.
Smart Blister Wallet

Blister wallet with individual cavities for tablets. The technology for therapy control is integrated into the blister wallet and is not visible to the user.
