PillDrill Review | Much More Than A Medication Reminder and Tracker – I was recently asked to look over a product called PillDrill and after seeing it talked about numerous times I was anxious to know more about this amazing product!
“PillDrill is a smart medication tracking system that simplifies the task of everyday pill taking. It gives reminders when medication needs to be taken, effortlessly tracks what you’re taking and how you’re feeling, and sends realtime updates to loved ones and healthcare professionals. PillDrill is easy to use, adapts seamlessly to any medication regimen, and works equally well for individual, family, or professional use.”
“The heart of the system is the PillDrill Hub, an attractive device that sits next to the user’s medication at home and issues clear audio-visual alerts when doses are due. To indicate that a dose has been taken, the user simply waves their medication container in front of the Hub. Each scan (or lack thereof) triggers an instant notification to family members and other concerned parties. This quick, familiar gesture – a scan – is both simple and powerful, resulting in improved adherence for the user and peace of mind for those who support them.”

- “Effortless medication tracking: No fussing with a smartphone or manually
jotting down what you take. With PillDrill, a quick scan of your medication
container is all that’s required to indicate that you’ve taken a dose.”
- “Effective & intelligent reminders: Because of the scanning process, the Hub
knows whether a user has taken their pills or not — so a reminder will only
be given when it’s actually needed. When a reminder does occur, it will
remain in “alert mode” until the dose is taken (unlike a phone alarm which
appears once and then disappears).”
- “Mood & pain tracking: Scanning the Mood Cube at any time enables the user
to log their current state of well-being, instantly communicate how they feel
to a loved one, and track health patterns over time by correlating what
medications they’re taking with how they’re feeling.”
- “Instance peace of mind for loved ones: PillDrill sends real-time adherence
and mood updates throughout the day to any family members or health
professionals so everyone can stay in the loop — without nagging.”

I absolutely love the concept of this product! Although I did not personally try this product, I feel it would make taking pills easy and has a great way to remind you or your loved one to take medication and track side effects if any. No wonder why it’s receiving a ton buzz and a ton of awards like; Frost & Sullivan New Product Leadership Award 2017, CES Innovation Award Honoree 2017 and ECRM Best New Home Health Product 2016. I would recommend this product to anyone having to take medication several times a day. The price may seem like a lot, but when you take in consideration everything this product does I feel it’s worth every penny and with the peace of mind it provides I feel it is priceless!
