Making sure that someone has taken their medication can be stressful, especially when supporting someone at a distance.  This new solution from Pivotell plus Carers UK combines the latest technology in pill dispensers with the Jointly care coordination app, to deliver reassurance and peace of mind to families and carers.

Developed by Carers UK Jointly is an online and mobile care coordination application designed to make caring for someone easier, less stressful and more organised by making communication
and coordination between those who share the care as easy as a text message.

Now users can link the Pivotell Advance GSM automatic pill dispenser with Carers UK’s Jointly care coordination app and receive alert notifications when a dose is dispensed or missed, along with other alerts that may require action.

Families can receive and store these messages in one central place and share them with everyone involved in someone’s care. Alert messages can be sent in the following instances to the Jointly circle:

  • Dose not taken (halfway through the alarm time, to allow time to prompt) and dose not taken (at end of alarm time)
  • Dose dispensed – an alert which also confirms that the user is active
  • Also four doses only remaining in the tray / Dispenser has been left upside down / Low battery / Device error
  • Jointly works on iPhone, iPad, Android devices and on most modern web browsers (home computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc.)

With Jointly, users can create a circle of care for the person being looked after, combining a number of key features in a single tool and keeping everyone in
the loop.
