How does it work? At preprogrammed times, a unit dose of medicine automatically drops into an easily accessed drawer. All other medicine is locked out. Audio and visual reminders are activated that alert the user to take his or her medicine.
Who should use the e-pill CompuMed? Many elderly and some with developmental disabilities use the e-pill CompuMed. CompuMed is ideal for those individuals who, if medication is not taken properly, must have additional help with their medication - from family members or professionals either at home or institution.
Why should CompuMed be used? When medication is taken properly, greater physically well-being results. There is the added benefit of greater self esteem and independence for the user and less cost and concern for the caregiver and payor.
Is it easy to use? Yes. particularly for the patient. Reminders let the user know it is time to take medicine. All he or she need do is open the drawer, take the medicine as indicated and close the drawer. There is no need to open medicine vials, to remember whether it is Monday or Tuesday or whether to take the red pill or the green one, etc.
How is it programmed? When CompuMed is first powered, it is programmed with current information and patient specific information. Typically, this is done by a caregiver (family member or professional). Programming is aided by simple instructions on e-pill CompuMed’s LCD screen.
First, the current day and time are set. Next, the time(s) medication is to be dispensed with the appropriate instructions (i.e. “8:00 A.M. - Take with food.”)
After programming, e-pill CompuMed Automatic Pill Dispenser reviews all instructions entered and verifies their correctness. If all is correct, the person setting the device, is instructed to push the “Start” key on the keypad. The dispenser then aligns itself to the proper day, time and dispensing position and continues with the programmed regimen week after week until changed.
Is it tamper proof? Yes. When the medication cassette is locked in the device, the keypad is also electronically disabled. The device cannot be reprogrammed or instructions changed without a key. All other medicine is locked out and only available at the correct time or when accessed with the key.
How does someone know when to take their medicine? The e-pill CompuMed dispenser has an audio alarm and LCD screen. The audio alarm can be adjusted for both pitch and volume. These adjustments help users with hearing loss find a sound and tone they can hear.
What if someone forgets to take their medicine? Will it double dose? No. If a medication time is missed and it is time for the next one, the message on the screen changes to “CAUTION, 1 MEDICATION TIME PASSED.” Only when the drawer is opened and closed again will the next medicine be dispensed. If more than one medication time is missed, the screen will indicate the number missed. The alarm continues during the entire time.
If someone knows they will be gone at a certain time and wants to take their medicine with them, can they? Yes. By unlocking CompuMed and de-activating the lock-out feature, an individual or caregiver can pre-dispense medication using the ADVANCE key. This feature is useful if an individual is going out for a short time and wants to take the medicine along. For example, a daughter may stop by at 11:30 a.m. and say, “Mom, let’s go to lunch.” Rather than wait until noon (if that is when Mom takes medicine) for the medicine to be dispensed, they can push the ADVANCE key (EARLY DOSE) and take the medicine with them. CompuMed keeps track of the medicine taken out and resumes dispensing at the next dose.
