Medical Adherence Technologies, Inc develops smart medication dispensing systems that track proper use of and adherence to medication and that are capable of automatically distinguishing different medications that a patient is taking.  This technology uses wireless connectivity to allow for timely notifications for the user, as well as notifications for the doctor or caregiver, who would be able to intervene if adherence drops to an unacceptable level.  The same technology also allows for data logging in order to analyze how patients interact with their medications, and to potentially revise regimens to better fit patients' lifestyles.
