MedFolio to Debut New Wireless Electronic Pillbox at 2012 ASHP (American Society of Health-System Pharmacists) Conference

MedFolio will unveil an updated wireless version of their award winning medication management device, the MedFolio Electronic Pillbox


WEBWIRE – Thursday, November 29, 2012

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (November 29, 2012) -- MedFolio, LLC announced today that the company will debut their all-new wireless MedFolio Electronic Pillbox unit at the upcoming ASHP Conference on December 2nd in Las Vegas. The ASHP Conference is the most widely attended pharmacy conference in the country, drawing more than 20,000 pharmacy professionals from over 80 countries. MedFolio president and veteran pharmacist Julie Fulmer-Mason will be on site to introduce the updated product and discuss MedFolio’s vision for eliminating medication adherence issues through the use of innovative new technology.

The updated wireless MedFolio Electronic Pillbox syncs medication adherence reports to an online cloud storage server. When granted access online, the MedFolio Adherence Reports allow for caregivers and family members to monitor if each medication is taken as prescribed or if any problematic patterns begin to develop. In addition to providing peace of mind to loved ones living apart, the accurate reporting of medication adherence will assist doctors and healthcare professionals with providing the best possible care specific to each patient’s needs.

MedFolio developed the MedFolio Electronic Pillbox to assist patients that struggled with medication adherence and properly following a strict dosing schedule. An uncomplicated yet sophisticated alternative to disposable storage units and traditional alarms, the MedFolio Electronic Pillbox not only stores and organizes medications, but also sends dosage alerts by text message, e-mail and audio/visual alarms. The development and implementation of wireless technology to help maintain proper medication adherence marks the continued efforts of MedFolio to adequately serve patient needs.

MedFolio brought the MedFolio Electronic Pillbox to market early in 2011 to an overwhelmingly positive response. The device won top honors at the 2011 New Product and Technology Awards, and consumer demand at the 2011 and 2012 AARP Life@50+ Expo has led to a wide distribution outlet that includes SkyMall, Hammacher Schlemmer and Amazon. The MedFolio Electronic Pillbox can also be purchased directly from the company, where additional professional support from a licensed pharmacist is available through the MedFolio Cares Program.
