Abstract

This paper presents an overview of smart medication dispensing and administration devices and software tools designed to minimize dispensing and administration errors. Some of them are for users who take medications on a long term basis without close professional supervision; others are for pharmacy and nursing staffs in hospitals, long term care, and assisted living facilities. These tools should be configurable, customizable, easy to use and effective for diverse users and care-providing institutions. The paper describes approaches taken to meet these objectives.
