Personal medication dispensing and remote monitoring
RxPense® is a personal medication dispensing and remote monitoring solution that ensures seniors, chronic care patients and disabled veterans at home, residence or managed care facility, take the correct medications on time and notifies caregivers, or pharmacists, psychiatrists, clinicians and physicians, if they miss a dose. It also accurately records and documents the consumption of PRN “as-needed” and OTC medications. It can also capture (though external sensors), monitor and store vitals along with the patient’s electronic record in the RxPense® Portal. It gives users access to digital health care and telemedicine.
In a complex world, we make it easier for seniors to take their medications on time.
