iPill is a high tech upgrade to the easy-to-bypass child-resistant pill cap.
iPill is a patented FDA designated breakthrough product that securely stores, safely disposes, and actively controls opioid dispensing with an app that biometrically ensures only the person prescribed a certain medication can access the pills and only as prescribed.
Any tampering will immediately destroy the contained pills, and unused pills are automatically destroyed at 90 days.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

No other device possesses both prescription adherence and opioid deterrence features in one product.
