PerceptiMed was founded by medical and engineering professionals with a desire to reduce the millions of medication errors that occur annually in the United States.
Each year 138 million medication errors occur in hospitals, nursing homes and local retail pharmacies, costing $21 billion annually. Every 4 days the average retail pharmacy fills a prescription with the wrong medication or wrong dose. One in 30 medications administered to in-patients are the wrong drug or dosage. PerceptiMed's mission is to make the dispensing of prescription drugs safer; reducing injuries and deaths while saving billions in medical costs.
We eliminate medication errors by identifying the drug and dose of individual pills in real-time and ensuring delivery to the right patient. PerceptiMed's technology identifies the composition of individual pills in real-time, checks each and every pill against the doctor's prescription, and ensures delivery to the correct patient.
