Ambient Paper For Adherence

We’ve all heard of GlowCaps which is a great idea of using sound and color and communications to remind people to fill their medications.

One idea I’ve thought about for several years is the idea of “intelligent paper”.  Imagine a refrigerator magnet or prescription label or some other piece of information printed on paper that changed color with time.  As it got closer to time to refill your medication, it would turn yellow.  When it was time to refill, it would turn red.

It should be easy.  If you blend this with the QR code that Walgreens uses for refills, you have a captive reminder and reorder system that could be embedded within the label for less cost.  I haven’t totally solved the issue, but it’s one that I think is feasible to accomplish and sell as a low-cost reminder vehicle.
