The Direct Alert automatic medication dispenser helps solve the problem of noncompliance with medication. The system can be easily programmed for up to 4 reminders a day and automatically deliver the prescribed dosage for the period. The system is monitored by the Direct Alert 24/7 central station and if a signal is received that the user did not take retreive their medication from the dispenser, a our trained agent will call the user and other contacts provided to remind them. The system is easy to use and plugs into your existing phone line. The system can also be used in conjunction with a Direct Alert personal emergency response system.
