Abstract

We describe a viable dynamic system to guarantee that pills delivered to a patient are what were prescribed, of sufficient quality to be effective, and within the correct time frame. A handheld device that identifies pills is also described that is suitable for use by health care providers. Issues of patient privacy, network security, and interacting with multiple databases are inherent to the entire process.
