Pilleve's aim is to fill in the gap between opioid prescription and addiction, which has affected millions of Americans and resulted in thousands of accidental overdoses. Pilleve decreases the costs of opioid abuse and addiction for insurance companies, providers, loved ones and patients. This ranges from accidental overdoses to long term treatment. We do that by detecting the signs earlier, intervening, and ensuring patients are using their prescription opioids safely. In doing so, pilleve decreases the social and financial burden that cripples patients and their stakeholders. Pilleve’s solution to opioid misuse and abuse starts with an integrated pill bottle, coupled with a smartphone application, that accurately monitor’s a patient's intake in real time and securely holds opioids at all times. Patients input passwords or use their phone’s biometric scanners to dispense a pill. Before dispensing their opioids, patients are asked about their pain levels and mood in order to assess if they’re showings signs of aberrant behaviors. Pill usage data at the point of intake is collected and analyzed. Physicians are then alerted if a patient is exceeding recommended dosages. Through their EHRs, physicians can see results in real time and intervene by changing a patient’s prescription, limiting dosages, or helping patients wean off their medication.Something looks off?
