Maya: Medication Management Made Easy

     In recent research, studies show that medication non-compliance causes 125,000 deaths annually in the US.  It is also responsible for 10 to 25 percent of hospital and nursing home admissions, and is fast becoming an international epidemic.  Around 50% of the two billion prescriptions filled each year are not taken correctly: 1/3 of patients take all their prescribed medication, 1/3 are semi-compliant, and 1/3 of patients are completely non-compliant when it comes to their medication

     In 2009, MedMinder Systems Inc. launched their solution to medication non-compliance.  Maya, a wireless pill dispenser, makes medication management effective and affordable.  It’s simple, easy to use, and improved medication compliance to 90%.   Maya contains 28 compartments, enough to house a week’s supply of medication, and accommodates a variety of pills.

    What makes Maya unique is it’s wireless technology (an internal wireless modem) that  automatically sends updates to MedMinder’s central computer about a patient’s dosage activity.  This information becomes available online for patients’ caregivers and family members via MedMinder’s website.  Caregivers and family members also receive weekly reports via text and email.  Maya is easy to install with no computers, phone lines, wireless routers, or internet access required.  Medication preferences are easily programmable by either manually programming the unit or remotely customizing via the internet.

     To remind patients to take their medication, the appropriate compartment housing the medication for that day and time flashes.  If the patient doesn’t take the medication on time, Maya sends out auditory alerts to the patient as well as a text message to the caregiver or family member.  Patients and their caregivers can re-fill Maya manually or they can also order a pre-filled tray from MedMinder.
