InteMed: real mHealth, Medication and Health Data from a Smartphone

  1. 1. DIGITAL MEDICATION MANAGEMENT with a Smartphone on the web at www.intemed.net
  2. 2. is short for Integrated Medication, meaning we have integrated medication into the digital environment. Introduction is a digital pill dispenser that integrates with a Smartphone. Similar in design to a battery back-up case, InteMed snaps onto the Smartphone and connects via pass-thru port, BlueTooth or WIFI. InteMed is patent pending. Note: Although the current prototype is a Mobile version, the same technology can be incorporated into a Table Top stationary device
  3. 3. Designed to Combat Medication Non-Adherence and Counterfeit Drugs The CDC estimates that 120 million American Adults have one or more chronic diseases requiring continuous medication Medication Non-Adherence: (not complying with prescribed medication treatment) - Adds $290B to healthcare costs annually - Results in tens of thousands of deaths each year Counterfeit Drugs: - Results in Billions of $$ in lost revenue annually - Results in thousands of deaths each year on the web at www.intemed.net
  4. 4. Current Prescription Medication Process The PROBLEM part #1 Typically a patient receives a paper prescription and a bottle of pills with a label identifying the medication and including simple instructions And more often than not, it’s multiple prescriptions and pill bottles Then they are on their own to manage the medication regiment that includes: - Identify the medication from the bottle label and match it to the paper prescription - Organize the identified meds per the schedule of the prescription - Remember to take the meds at the proper time and per the instructions - Remember to re-order their prescriptions in a timely manner on the web at www.intemed.net
  5. 5. Currently Available Management Aids The PROBLEM part #2 Each of the medication management steps detailed provides the opportunity for human error. So healthcare professionals offer aids to help their patients manage their medication. Although to varying degrees these aids help, they do not address the core issue, as detailed below.  Identify the Meds  Verify Quantity  Program medication schedule  Remember to take their meds (some aids provide audio notification)  Remember to reorder The patient or care giver still has to MANUALLY perform the management steps allowing for human error Simple compartmented weekly pill organizer Multi-Week pill organizer Longer term auto pill dispenser on the web at www.intemed.net
  6. 6. The SOLUTION part #1 replaces the pill bottle and paper prescription with our “Smart Cartridges” that include an embedded memory chip that allows your healthcare professionals to digitally manage your medication plan Pharmaceutical programs encrypted drug ID and tracking data Pharmacist programs drug interaction and specific instructions Doctor provides digital prescription programed by pharmacist on the web at www.intemed.net
  7. 7. The SOLUTION part #2 Just insert a “Smart Cartridge” into the InteMed device and the digital data provided by your healthcare professionals is used to:  ID medication to combat counterfeits  Verify Quantity  Program medication schedule with digital prescription  Present all pertinent medication data on screen AUTOMATICALLY  Vibratory, visual and audio notification to take meds on proper schedule. Touch the on-screen button to dispense:  Re-order meds on the web at www.intemed.net It’s like bringing your doctor and pharmacists home to manage your medications
  8. 8. The SOLUTION part #3: Healthcare DATA and DISTRIBUTION Note: The prototype shown is a proof of concept prototype. As such we used transparent materials to better demonstrate how it works. A commercial version will appear to look just like a non-descript battery back-up case. So only the user will know what it really is. generates a MED LOG automatically as the meds are dispensed. In addition because InteMed is integrated with a Smartphone, it has the ability to sync with both wearable vital sign monitors and/or with a full suite of telemedicine style monitoring equipment. It can then produce real time correlated medication/vital sign data and distribute via WIFI or cell signal. In doing so, InteMed brings medications into the digital environment. Among the many uses of this data, based on the direct link InteMed can have with your doctor, they could make digital adjustments to the medication plan/prescription. on the web at www.intemed.net From simple MEDICATION LOGS to Correlated medication/vitals outcome data
  9. 9. Final Points COST: Although InteMed is the only device that provides digital medication management by your healthcare professionals and allows for real-time correlated medication/vitals data, those unique features are not reflected in the cost. The reason is because the brunt of the required computing power is provided by the Smartphone we all carry around daily. InteMed’s electronics only needs to include an interface to the phone and a low power micro controller for pill dispensing. The Smart Cartridges can be designed for re-use or low enough in cost to throw away. BUSINESS MODEL: DATA: InteMed’s simple and unique approach of using currently available technology configured to combat non-adherence and counterfeits provides substantial value. However greater value may be realized in the potential of its capability to produce huge amounts of real-time healthcare data. This data could be useful in a clinical trial environment and be a major basis in determining outcomes. Because of its unique design, capabilities and application, InteMed offers the potential of major changes to the standard Smartphone business model, as follows:  Collection, analysis and sale of the healthcare data  Subsidized by pharmaceutical and or insurance companies  Covered by health insurance on the web at www.intemed.net
