Ingestible Biosensors for Real-Time Medical Adherence Monitoring: MyTMed
Medication nonadherence complicates the management and treatment of chronic disease. Nonadherence to medications is associated with significant mortality, accelerated disease progression, and increased health care costs. My/Treatment/Medication (MyTMed) is a novel adherence monitoring system that obtains direct measures of medication adherence/nonadherence. MyTMed consists of 1) a “digital pill” with a radiofrequency emitter that activates on contact with gastric pH; 2) a relay Hub that captures the radiofrequency signal and transmits it to 3) a cloud based server that connects patient and physicians via a bidirectional interface. In our increasingly mobile world, MyTMed is able to provide medication ingestion data and deliver interventions in real time that support adherence. We describe the patientcentered design of MyTMed as well as the behavioral theory supporting the interface architecture.
