Pillsy believes a helpful reminder can go a long way when it comes to taking medicine every day

For some people, taking medication inconsistently can greatly impact its effectiveness. Pillsy is a Bluetooth-enabled bottle cap that provides users notifications when they should be taking their medicine. For $39, users get the Bluetooth pill cap and access to a companion app that works together to provide reminders and notifications.

Besides reminding people to take their pills, Pillsy also provides information about the medications from an FDA database. A user writes the medication’s name, the dosage, and the time for a reminder. At the exact time, users will receive a reminder via a text message, phone call, or a lock screen notification. All this information is also tightly under wraps because the company is compliant with HIPAA. Although Pillsy may not seem that impressive, the beauty of the app lies in the fact that if someone skips a dosage, the app sends a notification to any caretakers.Currently, there are two models available, a smart medication cap and a smart vitamin cap.

Pillsy is basically a simple, tech-infused solution to a potentially significant problem.
