The Automated Pill Dispenser Project Final Report

The Right Pills At The Right Time, Delivering The Right Outcomes

Improvement and Efficiency West Midlands, NHS Midlands and East

Since it started in July 2009, the pilot has proved the dispenser to be invaluable in helping people who failed to take their medication properly stick to their prescribed regime. Over 250 people completed the pilot, and from the survey and anecdotal evidence, it has been proven that the pill dispenser has had a profound effect on their lives; both people who used the dispenser and their carers report gaining more control.

Of those who supplied feedback, an overwhelming 96% agreed the device had reminded them to take their medication, and as a result improved their health and made them more independent.
