mHealth: GloCap connected pill bottle
GloCap is an innovative product, a pill container top that has cell network connectivity and can remind you to take your pills by calling your phone.
I think this is a great product that should make a noticeable impact on the rates of medication compliance. I have not personally seen it yet, but it has been getting a lot of media attention on shows like The Colbert Report and on websites like Engadget.
For me this is a great reminder that it is good to think outside of the box for mobile health. There are other opportunities in mobile health technology besides iPhone/android apps. Thinking in different form factors for instance. Like GloCap did.
