TimerCap LLC is a leading innovator of easy and effective medication compliance packaging solutions to address poor medication adherence. TimerCap makes it simple to stay on top of medication schedules by replacing traditional prescription vial caps with a reusable simple cap incorporating a built-in digital timer. Working with Medisafe, a leading personalized medication management platform, TimerCap offers its iConnect line, a new Bluetooth-connected product line that includes iCap and iSort, which are connected compliance devices that store and record medication consumption, allow relevant reminders, and provide alerts to authorized loved ones and caregivers. The iCap can also alert a user and a caregiver if the cap is opened at the incorrect time, which can help prevent incorrect dosing and accidental overdoses.
Citing Facing Addiction in America: The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs, and Health, Philip Sugarman, TimerCap’s director of public relations, notes that nearly 21 million Americans struggle with substance addictions and one dies every 19 minutes from an opioid or heroin overdose. One of the biggest causes of opioid addiction is incorrect dosing — only 50 percent of patients take their medications as directed, with the main culprit being forgetfulness.
