Josh Stein, CEO and co-founder of AdhereTech, the company behind the bottle, said every time the patient opens the bottle, the bottle sends two pieces of data to our servers. Number one: the timestamp of the opening and the closing of the cap, and second time, a measurement of the amount of medication remaining in the bottle, CBS reported.

The bottle flashes blue when the user is supposed to take his medication, and if they miss their dose it flashes red and beeps.

The patient also gets alerted with an automated phone call or text message.
