The development of the Japanese company Otsuka allows you to embed a small chip in the tablet. When the drug dissolves in gastric juice, the chip sends information about the dose and time of medication to the app on your smartphone. After that, the chip without the slightest harm to the body excretes naturally.
Why it matters. The development will help to control the mode of medication, monitor the condition of patients, adjust the treatment plan. This is especially important in cases of patients whose recovery depends on the regularity of drug use and the correct dosage.
Implications for the industry. Such devices for monitoring drug treatment will solve the problem of low efficiency of drugs with improper use, which, for example, the us budget costs about $100 billion a year.
