Schreiner MediPharm developed a smart blister pack for a multinational pharmaceutical corporation, for digital patient compliance monitoring to enhance medication adherence by clinical trial participants.
Schreiner MediPharm worked on the packaging together with the Dutch technology company ECCT (Experts in Communications and Connectivity Technology). Employment of this electronic tool to manage and track processes during clinical trials marks a milestone for the pharmaceutical manufacturer.
Schreiner MediPharm, in cooperation with ECCT and the pharmaceutical corporation, developed a smart packaging solution for patient compliance monitoring: Pressing a tablet out of the blister pack generates data in real time such as the type of medication, the time of extraction and the respective cavity. This information is automatically stored in the smart package and transmitted to a database via a smartphone app or reader. Compliance of the respective patient is thereby tracked. Additionally, it is possible to send the patient a reminder to take the medication, to adjust the dose and to assist trial participants with interactive communication between the physician and patient in the interest of medication adherence.
