Technology behind Medicine Dispenser based on Adhaar QR authorisation and Medical profiling
iMed Dispenser is an automated medicine dispensing machine that uses the patient’s Aadhar card to dispense the medicine. After the medicines are dispensed, the patient is notified via the Android app, and his consumption log is constantly recorded. Details such as the doctor’s prescription, medicines that he has dispensed, and the patient’s consumption are used to generate a complete medical profile, that can be used by the doctor for further consultation. It has differentiation from Over the Counter drugs and prescribed medicines and incorporates a seamless payment gateway. The whole structure is modular and it’s all plug play depending upon the vendor’s needs.
We offer three modules, the vacuum operated module for single pill dispensing and Over the Counter drugs, the roller mechanism for strip dispensing and the conventional spring mechanisms for bottles and boxed medicines.
