Web-linked pillbox reminds patients to take meds

Web-linked pillbox reminds patients to take meds: "Grandpa may not remember whether he took his medication, but his pillbox does. A new device, the Med-eMonitor, alerts patients when it's time to take their pills. If they miss doses or take the wrong medication, the device sends a message to a secure Internet site via a standard phone line. Patients will then receive a check-up call from a health official."

Could this technology be incorporated in a cellphone ?

  1. Definately it can added to cellphones.

    1. OEMs can add a health app to their cells.

    2. Online sites can inform through SMS.

    3. Software vendors can develop cutom apps for smartphones.

    4. Telecom operators can provide reminder service.. like a wake-up call... setting up can be done by simply sending a SMS to customer care or online.
