Medication taking is a self-regulatory process that requires individuals to self-monitor their medication taking behaviors, but this can be difficult because medication taking is such a mundane, unremarkable behavior. Ubiquitous sensing systems have the potential to sense everyday behaviors and provide the objective feedback necessary for self-regulation of medication taking. We describe an unobtrusive sensing system consisting of a sensor-augmented pillbox and an ambient display that provides…

A Qualitative Assessment of an Ambient Display to Support In-Home Medication of Older Adults
TLDR
It is observed that seniors have risky medication-related behaviors as a consequence of the challenges impose by the setting, such as the lack of adequate pharmaceutical policies regarding the rational use of medicines and the follow-up on patients’ medication regimens.
Supporting the Medication Adherence of Older Mexican Adults Through External Cues Provided With Ambient Displays
TLDR
The findings of this study demonstrate that using ambient modalities for implementing external cues is useful for drawing the attention of older adults to remind them to take medications and to provide immediate awareness on adherence behavior.
Supporting the Medication Adherence of Older Mexican Adults Through External Cues Provided With Ambient Displays: Feasibility Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
The findings of this study demonstrate that using ambient modalities for implementing external cues is useful for drawing the attention of older adults to remind them to take medications and to provide immediate awareness on adherence behavior.
Assisting older adults with medication reminders through an audio-based activity recognition system
TLDR
A system based in machine learning for audio-based activity recognition using Hidden Markov Models over Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients and the integration of conversational agents into the system may support the mental association among activities and medication regimens that older adults fail to realize.
Supporting the Medication Adherence of Older Mexican Adults Through External Cues Provided With Ambient Displays: Feasibility Randomized Controlled Trial (Preprint)
TLDR
The findings of this study demonstrate that using ambient modalities for implementing external cues is useful for drawing the attention of older adults to remind them to take medications and to provide immediate awareness on adherence behavior.
PDMove
TLDR
The results show that smartphone-based gait assessment is a feasible approach to the AI-care strategy to monitor the medication adherence of PD patients and that PD patients will present gait abnormality if they do not follow medication treatment.
Towards better medication adherence apps: preventing forgetfulness by facilitating the formation of routine-based remembering strategies
TLDR
This thesis shows that adherence apps could effectively support long-term regimens by facilitating the formation of medication routines based on multiple contextual cues, and highlights the need to account for prospective remembering in future habit formation theories.
Understanding routines around medicine intake through a data-enabled design approach
TLDR
This study implements the contextual step by collecting data with a sensor module as an attachment to an existing pillbox and discussing the resulting data is then discussed with the participant to reveal novel insights into medication non-adherence.
Understanding the use of contextual cues: design implications for medication adherence technologies that support remembering
TLDR
It is shown that, given the latest developments in technology, adherence technologies should help users recognize contextual cues they already have at their disposal and reinforce relevant cues available in their environment.
Smart Medication Management, Current Technologies, and Future Directions
TLDR
This paper takes an interdisciplinary approach to review and compare existing engineering products for medication intake monitoring, discuss clinical applications where such technologies have demonstrated to be effective, and explore research gaps to shed light on unmet needs and future research opportunities.

TLDR
It is shown in this study that a system that generates reminders at an opportune time to take the medication significantly improves adherence, and that context-aware prompting may provide improved adherence over standard time-based reminders.
Reflecting on pills and phone use: supporting awareness of functional abilities for older adults
TLDR
The design and four month deployment of a prototype sensing system that tracks medication taking and phone use in the homes of two older adults is described and recommendations for the design of home sensing systems that support awareness of functional abilities for older adults using reflection are proposed.
MoviPill: improving medication compliance for elders using a mobile persuasive social game
TLDR
A mobile phone-based game called MoviPill is proposed and evaluated that persuades patients to be more adherent to their medication prescription by means of social competition and reveals the importance of applying persuasive techniques in a personalized manner.
Autonomous regulation and long-term medication adherence in adult outpatients.
TLDR
LISREL analyses supported the self-determination model for adherence by confirming that patients' autonomous motivation for adherence did mediate the relation between patients' perceptions of their physicians' autonomy support and their own medication adherence.

TLDR
A system that is context aware, and that utilizes information about past patterns of behavior plus the current context to provide prompts at the appropriate time and place is described.
Development and Psychometric Evaluation of the Self-Efficacy for Appropriate Medication Use Scale (SEAMS) in Low-Literacy Patients With Chronic Disease
TLDR
The SEAMS is a reliable and valid instrument that may provide a valuable assessment of medication self-efficacy in chronic disease management, and appears appropriate for use in patients with low literacy skills.
Theoretical Explanations for Reactivity in Self-Monitoring
Self-monitoring is the procedure by which individuals record the occurrences of their own target behaviors. In addition to providing a source of data, self-monitoring is also used as a therapeutic
Unintentional non-adherence to chronic prescription medications: How unintentional is it really?
TLDR
In this cross-sectional survey of adults with asthma, hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, osteoporosis, or depression, unintentional non-adherence does not appear to be random and is predicted by medication beliefs, chronic disease, and sociodemographics.
Interventions for enhancing medication adherence.
TLDR
The research in this field needs advances, including improved design of feasible long-term interventions, objective adherence measures, and sufficient study power to detect improvements in patient-important clinical outcomes.
