Pharmacies Nationwide Agree The Time Is Right
For The Rx Timer Cap®

Cap With Built-In Timer Lets Patients Know When They Last Took
Their Medication – Making A Difference In Their Lives And An Impact On
Our Country’s Healthcare Costs

                For Immediate Release:

LOS ANGELES (October 24) – The Rx Timer Cap®, the health industry-recognized simple and easy to use ‘smart cap’ that helps patients take medication on time according to their doctor’s prescription, has become embraced by leading national, regional and local pharmacies across the country.  The Rx Timer Cap® is available for free to many pharmacy customers nationwide - and is already making a profound difference in their lives and in the lives of their caretakers.

The Rx Timer Cap® features a built-in LCD timer that automatically counts the minutes and hours since a patient last took their medication. This Smart Cap Solution improves dosage instruction compliance and healthcare outcomes by providing critical feedback for patients that lets them know how they are doing taking their medication on time.

As a result of its success among patients nationwide in the important area of medication compliance, several health and governmental have cited the Rx Timer Cap® as an innovative and effective tool in helping reduce overall healthcare costs.

Said Richard Million Burke, Jr., President & Founder of Rx Timer Cap®, LLC “We are extremely pleased by the unanimous acceptance by pharmacies for the Rx Timer Cap® and their recognition of our product as a valuable compliance tool that is proven to enhance patient healthcare outcomes by improving patient medication adherence.”

Rx Timer Cap® activation is automatic and foolproof since there are no alarms to program, no buttons to press and no instructions to read. Unlike medication reminders and medication alerts, which require programming, the mere act of opening and closing the container resets the automatic patented pill timer.

In an independent study conducted with the drug Niaspan, patients using the Rx Timer Cap® experienced a 33.9% increase in compliance with dosage instructions.

The Rx Timer Cap® makes it much easier for patients to take their medications as prescribed by their physicians by automatically keeping track of the interval between doses. It also acts as a training tool, reinforcing the pharmacist’s medication adherence counseling and providing daily feedback to patients on how well they are doing.

The Rx Timer Cap® also increases safety by preventing prescription overdose which is a common problem particularly with pain medications. They will also help prevent drug diversion by alerting patients when someone else has opened their medication, the most typical example of drug abuse by teenagers.

And while medication adherence is important for all patients, its importance is intensified for patients who have complex conditions that require the use of specialty medications. For these patients, poor medication adherence can lead to expensive and life-threatening complications and increased mortality.

In addition, the increased number of seniors on medication dispensed by multiple caregivers and parents who share in the responsibilities of coordinating the medications their children are taking makes patient medication adherence management more difficult and patient engagement and assistance even more important.

“Community pharmacies are on the front line of healthcare, providing significant touch points for all patients in terms of access and frequency of interaction. Patients consider their community pharmacists to be one of their most trusted healthcare professionals and we could not be more proud to have Rx Timer Cap® play a vital role in their day to day operations,” added Burke.

About Rx Timer Cap – The Rx Timer Cap® replaces the regular prescription vial cap and features a built-in LCD timer that works like a stopwatch. The technology behind the display automatically counts the minutes and hours since a patient last took their medication. This simple and easy to use Smart Cap™ helps patients take medication on time according to the doctor’s prescription.
