Schreiner Medipharm has developed a smart extension for the Keystone Folding Box Key-Pak® wallet for oral solid dose medication. The customizable blister wallet combines a child-resistant paperboard package with state-of-the-art technology for digital adherence monitoring, enhancing clinical trial reporting accuracy.
The “smart” Key-Pak® wallet integrates conductive trace-patterns linked to each of the wallet card’s cavities. As a result, data is generated at the instant the patient removes a dose from the wallet. The details, such as time and date of dose removal and specific cavity location, are stored within the electronics inside the package and can be transmitted by means of NFC or Bluetooth technology for patient compliance tracking.
There is also an option to send medication dosing reminders to patients and adjust therapy plans as needed. Central tracking, data documentation, and analysis can be achieved when the wallet is used in combination with special software.
The smart blister wallet is child resistant and senior friendly. Patient ease of use is accomplished by a push-through safety feature. The solution can be customized to any clinical trial and its dosing scheme, such as the number of cavities, blister arrangement, and varying pill shapes.
By enhancing data quality and optimizing processes, the smart blister package can shorten trial duration, thereby accelerating the approval process for new drugs.
