PharmRight Corporation was formed in 2013 to produce devices and offer services that maximize medication adherence and keep patients at home. The company has developed LiviTM, an innovative, Internet- connected, automated home medication dispenser. A new entrant to what is being called “The Internet of Things,” Livi is designed to simulate the supervision of an on-site caregiver by prompting the user to take the right medication...at the right time...in the right quantity...with the right instructions under the Internet-enabled remote oversight of a caregiver or a team of caregivers. A cloud application monitors and captures all user interactions with the device. Family members and professional caregivers can be alerted via text message or e-mail if a user skips a dose or requires a re-fill. Comprehensive medication adherence reports are available via computer and mobile devices.
