Qolpac supports assisted living in the field of therapy adherence. We strongly believe (and several reports of studies support this view) that people are far more capable in maintaining a satisfactory quality of live with their own powers
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The conference, sponsored by Visa and Telefónica/O2, achieved so far every year a new record. The number of participants and their quality is increasing rapidly.
In the NFC Innovation of the Year category this year, four companies were nominated.
Winner was the Dutch company Qolpac, specializing in contactless smart medicine packaging that communicates with your Smartphone (app) through NFC technology (smart and secure successor of blue tooth technology). This stores information about their drug use, glucose score, weight or blood pressure and other measurements. The user can share the information with others, e.g. his pharmacist or family doctor through a web portal. Research shows that this Health-E-Ness system of Qolpac leads to a significant increase in adherence and (as a result) improved health, which in the Netherlands alone billions of euro’s could be saved in healthcare.
The Health-E-Ness app comes on the market end Q2 and the smart medicine packaging will gradually follow.
"Qolpac is a spin-out of the former DSM Specialty Packaging Pharma activities and DSM is a minority shareholder in Qolpac".
