Medicines send sms reminder to patient

Swiss pharma group Novartis is testing a system, developped by Proteus Biomedical, which inserts a chip in the shoulder of the patient and a micro-sized chip in the pills that patient has to take.  if the meds aren’t taken according to the prescription, the patient receives a reminder by SMS, triggered by the chip.  The system would stimulate good use of medicines, thereby increasing the effectiveness.
