Hospital to Pilot Ingestible Medication Sensors in Kids
Will track medication adherence in pediatric transplant patients
Children’s Health in Dallas, Texas announced plans to use Proteus Digital Health’s ingestible medication sensors to track medication adherence in kids with liver and kidney transplants.
Medication adherence is challenge for many patients for a variety of reasons — complexity of medication regiments, costs, memory, and more all play in to it. That problem is magnified by our (clinicians’) lack of awareness of it — we often just don’t know that our patients are, for whatever reason, not taking their medications.
