GMS Med-E-Lert Automatic Pill Dispenser for Simplified Medication Compliance

by Miranda Murray


7 out of 10 Americans are prescribed at least 1 drug, but your medication doesn’t work if you don’t take it.  Medication non-adherence is a growing concern in the healthcare field.  When a patient does not take their prescribed medication(s), it not only prolongs their ailment which may lead to a chronic condition, but it can also result in a rise in healthcare costs.

We understand that it can be difficult to follow a medication regimen as prescribed by your doctor, especially if you or your loved one require multiple medications.  Or perhaps, the person you care for may be on behavioral medications with a risk of overdose.  Maybe you are just looking for a simpler, better way to store your pills and vitamins.  Whatever the case may be, the GMS Med-E-Lert Automatic Pill Dispenser was designed to make your life easier.

The benefits offered by the GMS Med-E-Lert are vast.  It’s a tool that not only stores and dispenses your medication, but it also reminds you to take it!  It can be programmed to include up to six medication alarms a day.

When it’s time to take your medication, the tray within the Med-E-Lert will rotate your medication to the open slot in the front; making the proper medication available.  Then you simply pick up the Med-E-Lert and tip it over, dispensing the pills right into your hand!

Powered by 4 AA batteries (included), the Med-E-Lert can sit anywhere in your home or facility.  It’s equipped with 3 alarm tones or, if you prefer, it can remain silent.  Whichever option you choose, the red light on the top will flash when it’s time to take your medication.

Our elderly loved ones always wish to remain at home as opposed to living in a care facility.  The GMS Med-E-Lert can keep them home longer, by being their personal electronic aid that reminds them to take their medication.  A feature that is helpful in caring for others, especially those who may have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, is the fact that the GMS Med-E-Lert can be locked*.  This can prevent misdose or overdose by making only the pills in the open slot available.
