The ID-Cap™ System - Revolutionizing Remote Patient Monitoring
Publication/Creation DateJuly 31 2020
Description"Poor medication adherence is responsible for over $300 billion in avoidable healthcare costs each year. The ID-Cap™ System from etectRx™ revolutionizes remote patient monitoring by using technology to track and report verified ingestion events in real time.
The system is comprised of four key components: 1) The ID-Capsule - a standard hard gelatin capsule with an embedded ingestible sensor - the ID-Tag™. Each time and ID-Capsule is swallowed, the ID-Tag uses etectRx’s proprietary communications technology to transmit a very low power digital message from within the patient’s stomach. 2) The Reader - a wearable device that detects messages transmitted from ingested ID-Tags and forwards them using Bluetooth technology to the mobile app on the patient’s smartphone. 3) The App - a downloadable mobile app that relays the messages received by the Reader to the cloud-based secure server. It allows patients to view ingestion events as they occur and displays ingestion event history. 4) The Clinician Dashboard - a browser-based web portal that provides the clinician or pharmacist with a total view of their patients’ ingestion events."
