New York District Attorney and family court judge James Punch has officially endorsed a joint project by ROBRADY Design and Joe Bujalski to give patients, physicians and pharmacists another tool to address the opioid epidemic—The PILL. The PILL, a smart opioid dispenser, synergizes digital technology and design thinking into a sustainable, reusable product that delivers substantive solutions to our nation’s urgent problem. The device, which expands on the original patent addresses many of the factors leading to opioid misuse and addiction. The dispenser, issued as usual by the pharmacist, contains the prescribed medication in the appropriate doses in a tamper-evident plastic container. A digital, E-ink display can show prescription information, dosage timer, QR codes. When the timer reaches zero, patients can rotate their next pill to the finger hole and punch it through the foil seal. Once rotated, the dispenser locks until the timer reaches zero again. In addition to setting the intervals for pill access, pharmacists can also read information from the PILL to review and monitor a patient’s usage habits, a further safeguard against addiction and accidental overdose.
