Abstract

Poor medication adherence is a serious medical problem, particularly in older adults. Various solutions have been developed to remind people to take their medications, but these systems are usually simple time-based alarm systems that are not particularly effective. We describe a system that is context aware, and that utilizes information about past patterns of behavior plus the current context to provide prompts at the appropriate time and place. A case study from our initial deployment of the system to eleven older adults illustrates the possibilities and advantages of context aware prompting systems.
