Started with a concern about medication non-adherence and how technology, could possibly help to understand the “after weekend, Monday morning” patient. This query from the professor and psychiatrist, Dr. Allan to Mr. Michael, the still-young award winning entrepreneur, is what led to the birth of the electronic content monitor (ECM), known commonly throughout the clinical trial world as the Med-ic Smart Package.
