cue-Rx™ monitors prescription schedule compliance of discharged patients in real-time. You’re never relying on patient self-reporting. Missed doses send a series of alerts to patients, caregivers, and hospital caseworkers who can respond immediately. Compliance data is easily accessible for evaluation and intervention.  cue-Rx is unique because it is not a pill dispenser, it’s a medication management system.  Typical pill dispensers require pills to be removed from their containers and put in the dispenser, increasing the risk for error and for harmful medication interactions.  cue-Rx provides a reliable system for storing medications in their original bottles with instructions, and taking them according to the appropriate schedule.

  • alert missed doses
  • text or phone patient, caregivers, HCPs and family members
  • notifies hospital caseworker
  • improve dialogue with patients

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

MEDICATION NON-ADHERENCE IS A MAJOR PROBLEM.

  • Medication non-adherence is one of the leading causes of death in the US.1
  • Non-adherence results in 10% of hospitalizations yearly, costing the healthcare system as much as 3 billion.1
  • More and more families have to resort to in-home care, or assisted living communities to ensure their loved ones medicate correctly.
  • Over 34 million people are caring for their parents or family members2 – often juggling jobs and young families in addition to their role as caregiver.
  • Patients want to live independently longer and their families need peace of mind that medications are taken correctly.

BENEFITS TO PATIENTS & THEIR FAMILIES:

  • cue-Rx shares adherence in real-time – every time – with healthcare provider & family/caregivers.
  • Prevents prescription under/over use.
  • Pills stay in their original bottles to keep patients aware of any warnings (holds 10 standard size bottles).
  • Simple enough for anyone to use at home.

BENEFITS FOR HOSPITALS, HOME HEALTHCARE & ASSISTED LIVING:

  • Better patient care & improved outcomes: Prevents prescription under/over use and interactions.
  • Reduces unnecessary re-admissions.
  • Simplifies compliance reporting.
  • Dashboard allows for scheduling, remote monitoring, and reporting or an unlimited number of patients with easy to use software.
  • Alerts are customizable for the patient, family and clinicians.
  • cue-Rx supplies its own cellular connectivity, no added IT needed on the part of the facility.
