Recently, an electronic version of the Dosepak® (EDP) has been developed to monitor adherence to tablets, pills or capsules. It consists of a customizable blister package with a re-usable electronic module that records when the package is opened and closed. In this project we aimed to assess the usability and acceptance of the EDP, and to monitor dose-taking adherence. At MAECON, we performed this study in 20 healthy volunteers and combined quantitative and qualitative evaluation methods. The results will inform future implementation.
