In-home medication dispenser and connected health partner
Pharmacy owner Craig shares his spencer experience
spencer’s ability to capture timely, relevant patient feedback with an 85% response rate is transformative to better health management.†
spencer's daily insight into patient schedules, beliefs and habits allows care-giving experts to collaborate on the most optimal and patient-centered med plan.
spencer connects with Bluetooth devices (blood pressure, weight) and a secure cloud-based clinical platform for personalized monitoring and intervention.
†Patient question-answer response rate as of December 9, 2016 HAP Innovations.
Preparation of all meds into multi-dose strip packaging leads to 94% increased adherence (Philips Healthcare Media), and rates highest among packaging options (shell / blister packaging, vials etc.) for consumers (Male/Female/Age/Chronic/Non-Chronic). (Summary of Multi-Med Qualitative Research, MeadWestvaco).
Too many people report missing a pill because they simply forgot or did not put it in the right pillbox compartment. multi-dose packaging makes it easy to see what meds have been taken, building confidence about adherence.
Medications are provided in a self-contained refill, making loading a simple one-step process for the patient. Automatic lid closure and opening is appreciated by arthritic customers and attractive to behavioural health providers.
Pharmacist oversight is critical in the success of any adherence program. Customers trust and appreciate that the pharmacist has a quality control process and can intervene when adherence is a challenge.
spencer brings healthcare to the home, consistently engaging with a patient by becoming part of their daily life and involving care team members to work together to achieve health goals. spencer connects the patient to the rest of the healthcare ecosystem.
Find the best home for your spencer. The most popular spots for this attractive and discreet item are the kitchen (60%), bathroom (30%) and bedside (10%) (HAP Innovations).
Medications are pre-packaged by the pharmacist – so there’s no need to count or sort pills – and spencer dispenses the appropriate medications at the appropriate time.
Connecting the patient with the rest of the healthcare ecosystem completes the caregiving circle, giving the highest chance of total adherence for people living at home.

Using oneMAR has contributed to our facility becoming the best in the region for reduced med errors with Health Care Assistants.
