Medication management is important for older adults, especially those at higher risk during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Automated medication dispensers could help, particularly when under quarantine, isolation, and social distancing. Check the resources in CAST Leaders Join Older Adults in Tech Design to explore these technologies. Please make sure your practice adheres to state and federal regulations governing medication management/dispensing.
