SPOTLIGHT: Investor conference highlights personal medication compliance

Such startups displayed their wares at OneMedForum, an annual finance meeting meant to showcase emerging companies, earlier this month in San Francisco. For example, for $99, you can get visual reminders to take your medication from a product called GlowCap.

The cap can track when the bottle is opened and whether patients missed a dosage. FierceMobileHealthcare
