The premier medication management system on the market for individual use. The program helps keep patients independent in their homes, and on track with their daily medication schedule, preventing double dosing, incorrect dosing and missed doses.
Patients need to consistently maintain their medication schedule in order to stay healthy and manage health challenges. Many patients are capable of living independently or semi-independently, but struggle to stay on track with their medications. For these patients, nursing homes and facilities are expensive alternatives to the medication management program. Oftentimes, these patients prefer to maintain their independence and remain in their homes, which the program empowers them to do.
Anodyne installs, programs and trains patients and caregivers on the use of the machine. The machine can then be filled with up to 60 scheduled doses of medication. When it is time for a dose, the machine notifies the patient using audio messages and visual notifications and the patient simply presses a large red button to retrieve their programmed dose. Future doses are locked in the machine. Access to the key can be determined by caregivers and family members. The machine supports regular schedules, irregular schedules, PRN doses, early doses, caregiver monitoring (phone line required) and special dose instructions as needed. Anodyne provides 24/7 phone support
to assist caregivers with schedule changes, loading and anything else that arises.
Elderly patients and those with disabilities or conditions that make keeping a regular medication regimen a challenge. It provides peace of mind and assistance to caretakers and family members, helping patients stay on track with their medication regimen. Patients who are otherwise able to live independently or semi-independently, but struggle to consistently take their required medication, are ideal candidates for the program.

Yes - patients simply press a large button to retrieve their medication cup. The cup has been pre-filled with their correct medication and dosages for that exact time of day. The patient receives audio and visual reminders at the time of their dose. It prevents patients from having to remember: a) which medications to take b) the correct dosage amounts and c) the time of day to take each particular dosage.
Yes – the machine can be pre-loaded with up to 60 doses, reducing the time and effort spent by caregivers to keep patients on schedule. The program includes a loading tray to help organize the dosage cups prior to filling, and the machine instructs you as you go along loading the machine. Rather than managing a patient's medications several times per day, you can manage them once every several weeks and let the machine do the rest.
Anodyne assists caregivers with programming the machine during the initial install appointment. Paper guides, as well as video guides in the
are made available to caregivers. Caregivers can call Anodyne at anytime for 24/7 phone support
and assistance with making changes to device settings.
The system has both audio (voice messages) and visual (lights and LCD screen) notifications. The volume can be increased as needed to assist users with hearing loss, or decreased, if desired. The lights and LCD screen aid those who have fully lost hearing. The LCD screen also provides any instructions specific to a given dose until the dose is dispensed. The audio messages aid the visually impaired. These notifications can be customized to fit the patients preferences and needs.
A patient or caregiver who has access to the machine's key can pre-dispense medication using the 'EARLY DOSE' key. This feature is useful if an individual is going out for a short time and wants to take the medicine along. For example, a daughter may stop by at 11:30am and say, “Mom, let’s go to lunch.” Rather than wait for the medicine to be dispensed, they can push the 'EARLY DOSE' key and take the medicine with them. This feature requires the machine's key, which is kept by either the patient or caregiver depending on the situation, in order to access.
The Medication Management Program qualifies for reimbursement under all waivered services programs in the state of Minnesota. Organizations such as the Veterans Administration, Area Agencies on Aging and more, enroll their members in the program. Many children of elderly parents privately enroll their parent(s) in the program. Anodyne provides third party billing services at no extra cost.
The program rate is $125 / month. There are no up-front setup fees or additional fees to access any program features, such as 24/7 caregiver support, technical support and more.
