Many people rely on medications to help them stay healthy, but complex medication schedules can lead to mistakes. The Philips Medication Dispensing Service helps individuals remain independent in their own homes by providing the right dose at the right time.

  • Load – You or a home care professional put the subscriber’s medications into individual cups and load them into the dispenser. Philips Lifeline will help with the scheduling of dose times.
  • Dispense – Audible and visual reminders inform the subscriber that it’s time to take his or her medication. The unit dispenses the pre-loaded medications with the simple press of a button.
  • Alert – The dispenser is connected to the subscriber’s telephone line, so if a dose is missed, the dispenser can contact you or another family member. You can then check on the subscriber to make sure he or she is getting their medication.
