LAB 1 WRITE-UP
The health issue being addressed is medication usage. Currently, thirty two million Americans use three or more medications daily (PhRMA 2011) . However, the modern person is always on the go, throwing themselves into their work, and losing track of time. According to a review in Annals of Internal Medicine, about fifty percent of medication for chronic diseases are not taken as prescribed . Today, people check their phones 150 times a day, checking them every six minutes . Despite forgetting to take important medication, no one ever leaves for the day without a cell phone. The product developed to solve this issue is a pill box phone case. This will be able to hold at least a week’s worth of medication on the back of a smartphone. The case will also be connected to an app that can be downloaded, performing several tasks including a reminder of when to take the medication, track how many pills are left in the case and in total, send reminders to the user when a refill is needed, and contact the user’s pharmacist when a refill is needed. In addition, there will be a touch ID to open the case to prevent medication from being lost or stolen.

US20150048102 A1: Electronic pill box and medication reminder and compliance system incorporating same  Inventors: Robert G. Dickie, Walter Prokopchuk; assignee: Next Paradigm Inc.; Filing date: August 13, 2013; no images available. This is a pill box that lights up the pill compartments to remind patients to take their pills on time; if the light is on they still haven’t taken the pills. This would be fundamentally different than a phone case, as it is a traditional pill box style. It is similar to the design in that it aims to remind the patient of their prescription.
US20160081882: Phone case pill dispenser  Inventors: James Joyce, David Shanahan; assignee: HealthBeacon, Limited; Filing date: August 6, 2015; no images available. This patent describes a phone case that contains pills and connects to the smartphone to know if the door to any given compartment has been opened or closed. It describes a phone case that specifically aims to dispense, not store medications. This phone case does not exist and although there exists a patent, it is easy to improve upon the idea with an accompanying application that allows the patient to connect with their pharmacy and or know if they still need to take medication.
