Abstract: The inability to conform to regular medication regime has always been the main issue when it comes to increased hospitality and mortality rate in the world, especially to patients with long term illness such hypertension, dementia, cardiovascular disease and mental disorders. Having to miss a dosage can be detrimental to a patient’s health, increasing hospitalization and mortality rate. Research has shown that patients forgetting or deciding not to consume a dose is the most important cause of poor adherence amidst many other contributing factors. Current solutions available out there are focused solely on combating two of the many factors that contributes to poor medication adherence/nonadherence however medication adherence is a complex problem with multi contributing factors. The motivation behind this project is aimed to tackle as many of the contributing factors of poor adherence/nonadherence of medication, without causing discrepancy to the patient’s lifestyle. The project implements a deployable add-on system that integrates with the patient’s current medication storage using Internet-of-Things and Cloud Computing to ensure the system is scalable, robust and reliable.
