For drug delivery to be effective, two very important conditions need to be met. First, drug quality needs to be ensured until the time of administration to the patient. Second, the patient needs to adhere to the prescribed therapy. Two easy-to-use solutions will be presented. They comprise a battery, an antenna and a single chip that integrates a sensor, storage and NFC connectivity. Both solutions support wireless communication with a smart phone. A temperature monitoring solution permits logging of transport conditions of each individual drug package at any point in time. Patients and healthcare professionals can confirm the drug quality at the moment of administration. A therapy adherence monitoring solution for drug blisters and bottles records medication intake events. In case the intake deviates from prescription, patients can be reminded and motivated to do better.
