Abstract

Misuse of prescription and over-the-counter drugs is a growing problem that impinges heavily on the well-being of people and the economics of public health systems. Most commonly, misuses arise from forgetfulness or lack of information about drugs and their interactions, hence there is much place for solutions to automatically monitor medicine intake, issue reminders and deliver medical advice. This paper presents a system that accomplishes these tasks by harnessing recent advances in smart medicine packaging, residential networks and semantic reasoning. Such a combination yields a medicine manager featuring great precision in drug monitoring, plus unprecedented capabilities to reach the users and provide them with valuable information.
