A smart plastic cap helps patients take medication when they are supposed to. The cap, which can be fitted to standard prescription bottles, flashes and plays a ringtone when it’s time to take a dose. If a patient misses those cues, it sends a signal to a receiver plugged into a wall socket, which has the system call the patient’s phone with a reminder. The system can also send reports to family members and the patient’s doctor, and it can contact the pharmacy when a refill is needed.
