Capacitive Sensing Syringe IoT Use Case

Prevent Severe Medication-Related Injuries and Monitor Patient Compliance

Capacitive Sensing Syringe IoT Use Case

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), inaccurate medication-related incidents cause at least one death a day and harm about 1.3 million people every year in the U.S. alone.

Medication errors cost $42 billion globally, equating to about 1% of total expenditure on healthcare. Patient compliance monitoring solutions, like capacitive sensing syringes powered by near field communication (NFC) technology, support the WHO’s five-year program to halve the number of incidents leading to severe, preventable medication-associated damage.

Identiv’s uTrust Sense SyringeCheck is a NFC-enabled, smart injectable dose monitoring solution ensuring patients take medication properly and clinical studies achieve compliance and trustworthy trial results.

This patient compliance monitoring technology helps clinical trials achieve meaningful results, supports insurance companies in providing valuable prescription programs, and ensures patients take medication properly.

“Incorrect medicinal practices and medication-related errors result in tremendous loss across the globe. The World Health Organization launched a five-year program in 2017 to halve the number of incidents leading to severe, preventable medication-associated damage. Capacitive sensing syringes can help achieve that goal.”
