It also accurately records and documents the consumption of PRN “as-needed” and OTC medications. It can also capture (through external sensors), monitor and store vitals along with the patient’s electronic record in the RxPense® Portal.

The RxPense® helps to avoid medication errors
The pill dispenser that helps avoid medication errors
Medication errors and adverse events are the 4th leading cause of death. With close to 5 billion prescriptions filled each year, an aging society, reduced resources and increasing healthcare costs, it’s already a $300 billion problem.
Patients forget to take their medications, creatively alter their medications, engage in unendorsed polypharmacy, mix their medications, and take medications in combinations that may have dire “cocktail” effects, ranging from dizziness and confusion to hallucinations, bradycardia, apnea and even death.
RxPense® uses physical and virtual security, state of the art communication and identification technologies, combined with a patented dispensing solution to ensure the right patients always receive their prescribed medications at the designated time. RxPense® closes the gap between the pharmacist and the patient.
Confusing, complicated regimens are a thing of the past.
The RxPense® helps with rehabilitation
Rehabilitation Centers & Mental Health Solutions
Treatment and rehabilitation centers help people struggling from drug, alcohol or substance abuse or addiction. The focus of the rehab center is on providing help for these people to safely reduce, then eliminate their dependency. At home, the treatment may continue. In addition, people afflicted with mental health conditions and receiving medications as part of their treatment, may require adherence to strict dispensing cycles and monitoring.
The RxPense® can be used to secure medications and control their release. In addition, custom and extensive reporting and monitoring capabilities are available in the Cloud.

The RxPense® is patented and designed for 30 second loading, automated self-programming and ease of use. Perfect for seniors to remain at home longer and connected to loved ones, wherever they may be.
Anyone consuming 5 or more medications per dose, 4 to 8 times daily, not only has a difficult time organizing their daily medications, but also forgets whether they took a dose. Sachet packaging does not help. Receiving 4 or 5 baggies with medications, automated or not, are too confusing and subject to overdose when a dose is missed. Vials are confusing and difficult to open. Cute pill reminders do not work for seniors or those suffering from mental health issues. We invented RxPense to solve these and other medication adherence problems.
