The new pill-reminder is a two-unit system.
The first unit is an electronic tool which is in the patient's possessions at all times. It is equipped with a large OLED display, a RFID reader, a touchpad, speakers and a vibration alarm. The second unit is a new version of a common tablet packaging. The two units will communicate, when they are connected. The blister package holds data that can be read by the first unit's RFID reader.
This system provides an easier way of medication, as the patient's complete prescription will be compiled by a pharmacy system. The display enables the patient to check on all information regarding the medication.
