New Product May Help to Reduce Non-Compliance


Get Permission

A novel product created to help reduce medication non-adherence was recently recognized by the 2014 Pharma Choice Awards as the top innovative branded technology. The product, called “remind-a-cap” is a customizable and patented pill bottle cap with an ergonomic dial to set for next dosing. The cap can be customized to the specific course for a medicine without batteries, programming, or the need for patients to be digitally savvy.  The dial on the cap turns with a click to reveal they day of week (Monday – Sunday) and time for next dose (am/pm). The cap is designed with an “S” shaped dial for ease and comfort, on a child-resistant safety cap retrofit to the current bottle packaging. For more information, visit
