GlowCaps help people take important medications every day. The Internet-connected caps fit on existing prescription pill bottles and raise medication adherence.

GlowCaps also help with refills by connecting a patient to their pharmacy as pills deplete. They are different from automated pill dispensers or reminder services because they address each of the root, behavioral causes of non-adherence.
