I came across the HealthOneMed Dispense-A-Pill (DAP) Personal Medication Manager while surfing the â€˜net one afternoon earlier this week. Itâ€™s basically a miniature ADU with pie-shaped wedge slots for personal medications. I thought it was pretty slick.
From HealthOneMedâ€™s website (the interactive display of the DAPâ€™s capabilities is cool):
HealthOneMedâ€™s Dispense-A-Pill (DAP) Personal Medication Manager addresses the issue of medication non-compliance by integrating the disparate approaches of pill boxes, reminders, pill dispensers and medication alert devices into a single comprehensive device enabled by new technology developed and patented by HealthOneMed.

Safety & Security
DAP is unparalleled in its safety capabilities, including its â€œNo-touchâ€ pill organizing, loading and dispensing, advanced medication on demand capability (e.g. for â€œtake as neededâ€ medications), password protection (e.g. caregiver medication instructions not overridden by individual), childproof setting and battery back-up in case of power loss.
Personalization & Connectivity
HealthOneMed is unique in its approach to integrating personalization into the DAP. Enabling the DAP to record personalized medication reminders (e.g. a granddaughter recording a reminder message, â€œGrandpa, time to take your medicineâ€) helps an individual adhere to his medication protocol. FunMinderstm are personalized reminders that can be set for lifeâ€™s other important activities, errands or appointments. In addition, caregivers can view medication compliance history and be alerted if an individual misses his medication.
The DAP is unique as it can manage up to 16 pill and non-pill medications. The DAP can store and dispense 90+ days of up to 8 different pill medications as well as manage up to 8 additional pill and non-pill medications, including topical creams, liquids, eye drops, inhalers or insulin injections.
