Problem: One half of patients with chronic illness do not take their medication as prescribed. Nonadherence leads to catastrophic medical events, permanent disability, and $100 billion in healthcare costs each year.
Solution: A medication adherence technology that connects taking medicine to the well-being of another person. The technology is based on social neuroscience research that points to empathy and guilt as effective modifiers of behavior.
