Abstract

A high level of non-compliance relating to taking of medication can lead to compromised health benefits and wasted money. Improving patient compliance has the potential for improving issues related to Cardiovascular Disorder (CVD) and many other diseases. This paper developed a prototype system for monitoring medication dosages in a home health care environment. The combination of an RFID technology – the Intel Wireless Sensor Platform(WISPs) and the construction of a specific pill dispensing container was used in this prototype demonstrated that it is possible to use RFID technology to effectively and ubiquitously monitor and track drug-taking compliance. With further refinements on the dispensing unit and optimisations in the software, this system could help increase compliance and reduce health related issues.
