ROCKVILLE, Md. InforMedix Holdings and Rodman’s Discount Drug Store have joined together to introduce the Med-eMonitor System that is used to monitor medication adherence and improved health for the drug store’s patients.
The Med-eMonitor System is an interactive so-called “Smart Pillbox” that not only stores medications, but also tracks patient adherence to the medication and health status. The system also uses alerts to tell people when they miss their medication or when their health declines.
The Rodman’s store located at 5100 Wisconsin Avenue, NW Washington, D.C., will host the event to introduce the system on Nov. 7.
“We are proud that Rodman’s, a pioneering independent pharmacy and household name in Washington for five decades, is the first pharmacy in the D.C. area to market the Med-eMonitor System,” said Bruce Kehr, chief executive officer and chairman of InforMedix and chairman of the board at the Institute on Aging at the University of Pennsylvania.
