"This is a great way to improve adherence and compliance issues. CSPN provides and excellent way for companies like Rx Timer Cap to get their product to a large number of practicing specialty pharmacies. This type of collaboration, to advance care to patients, is wonderful to see,” said Gary M. Cohen, BSPharm, RPh, Publisher of Specialty Pharma Journal.
The Rx Timer Cap has an LCD timer that automatically counts the minutes and hours since a patient last took their medication. The patients receive critical feedback from this, informing them on how they’re doing on taking their medication on time.
Nick Calla, CSPN Vice President of Industry Relations in a news release said the "Rx Timer Cap® is a valuable compliance tool for our specialty pharmacy network. It will aid our network members in the management of their patient populations that are a challenge from an adherence point of view.”
The pill timer is foolproof since the container resets the pill timer by opening and closing the container. There are no necessary buttons or instructions for the patient to learn. The Rx Timer Cap acts as a training tool to pharmacists by reinforcing the pharmacist’s medication adherence counseling and giving daily feedback to patients on how they are doing with the medication.
It prevents prescription overdose and alerts patients when another person has opened their medication.
Adherence is a very important factor for patients with complex conditions who required specialty medications because poor adherence can cause life-threatening complications and increased mortality.
