Abstract

Patient medication and prescription adherence has been a widely recognized problem in the healthcare industry. With the advent of mobile technology comes an opportunity to further develop the methods used to confront the ongoing problem of medical compliance in patients. Attempts have already been made to utilize mobile technology for this purpose; however, there exists a disconnect where the user is uncomfortable with using a mobile device. The aim of this project is to close that gap by designing a medication compliance application that is intuitive and easy to use, even for those individuals who find the concept of a smart phone outlandish and daunting, and is capable of passively accumulating data on patient medical compliance.
