Sep 02, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
KORE, a wireless services provider, has announced that AdhereTech has selected KORE network to power its wireless medication bottles.
The KORE M2M network will provide reliable and cost-effective cellular connectivity, enabling AdhereTech to remotely monitor and automatically alert patients on medication adherence. By relying on the ubiquitous KORE network for M2M connectivity between its wireless pill bottles and its servers, AdhereTech is helping patients, physicians and the pharmaceutical industry ensure medication compliance, said KORE.
According to KORE, the innovative AdhereTech smart pill bottle comes pre-configured to send regular alerts via the KORE network, enabling AdhereTech to communicate the appropriate HIPAA-compliant medication updates to patients and healthcare professionals. By wirelessly transmitting real-time data, such as when the patient last used the bottle and how many pills were removed, the AdhereTech solution helps patients take the right medication at the right time.
The pill bottle data is securely transmitted to the cloud on the KORE network where the AdhereTech application automatically sends medication reminder alerts to the patient via the actual bottle's blinking lights or chimes- as well as a phone call or text message, added KORE.
"The healthcare industry is developing and deploying new M2M technologies that improve patient care, reduce costs and automate services," said Alex Brisbourne, president and COO, KORE.
"Delivering reliable cellular and satellite connectivity across the globe for reliable health management services has been a significant focus, and KORE continues to be the M2M network of choice for companies like AdhereTech that are introducing innovative healthcare applications that are revolutionizing the industry. KORE is proud to work diligently with its partners across industries to understand their business, helping them more quickly and efficiently bring new M2M applications to market."
