Adherence can be an issue for patients. Remembering to take pills can be hard. Wouldn’t it be great if all you had to do was push a button? Well now you can.

Hero is a revolutionary smart appliance that stores, dispenses, and manages your prescription drugs and vitamins and connects through the Hero Connect app.

Never forget your pills again. Hero Connect will let you know when it is time for you to take your pills and you’ll receive an end-of-day summary about how well you are staying on track. Hero Connect can even warn you if you are running low and can order your refills on Amazon.com. In addition, pharmacies can partner with Hero to ensure prescriptions are being filled.

Everyone needs a hero! And that is why I am nominating Hero for Best New Platform or Service.

CHRISTINE PETERSON: Is adherence an issue for your clients? Remembering to take daily medication can be hard and can affect patients’ health. Why should taking your pills be such a chore? Wouldnt it be great if all you had to do was push a button?

My nomination for Best New Service is Hero. Hero is a pill dispenser that connects to an app and helps patients manage adherence. Hero knows your schedule so you can retrieve your vitamins and prescription pills on time. Say goodbye to childproof caps and pill planners. Hero can hold over a month’s supply of pills and all of your medication will be in location. Hero tracks medication use and can even refill prescriptions through Amazon.com.

In addition to adherence, pharmacies can partner with Hero to ensure prescriptions are being filled. Everyone needs a hero and that’s why I am nominating Hero for Best New Platform or Service.
