AT&T Connected Vitality GlowCaps Wins 2011 Global Mobile Award
Date:2/16/2011

DALLAS, Feb. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Vitality, Inc. and AT&T* have been honored with a prestigious 2011 Global Mobile Award for AT&T connected Vitality GlowCaps. The Global Mobile Awards recognize excellence and innovation in mobile products, services and initiatives across the global mobile eco-system.

The Global Mobile Award winners were announced yesterday in a special ceremony during the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. AT&T connected Vitality GlowCaps won in the Best Embedded Mobile Product/Device (Non Handsets) category.

"We're extremely proud to receive this award from the global mobile industry that recognizes the innovation and integration we're bringing to customers," said Glenn Lurie, president, emerging devices, AT&T. "AT&T connected Vitality GlowCaps are all about delivering a simple, easy to use, solution to consumers looking to maintain a prescription routine."

Vitality's AT&T-connected GlowCaps fit on standard prescription bottles and use light then sound reminders, which can be followed by a phone call or text message so people don't miss a dose. Each time the pill bottle is opened, adherence data is recorded and relayed to Vitality over the AT&T wireless network. This daily adherence information is used to compile periodic progress reports that are sent to patients, caregivers and doctors, and family members.

"We are honored to have Vitality GlowCaps recognized by the Global Mobile Awards," said Vitality CEO David Rose. "As we continue to expand our mHealth reach through a product line expansion, this recognition confirms our commitment to developing products that promote healthy consumer behavior."

Earlier this month it was announced that Vitality, Inc. had been purchased by Los Angeles-based Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong. “I congratulate the Vitality team on this award,” said Soon-Shiong, “and I am proud that this innovation will play an important role in helping patients with chronic diseases.”

Vitality GlowCaps illuminate, play a melody, and even ring a home phone so patients don't forget to take their medication. GlowCaps send weekly emails to remote caregivers, create accountability with physicians through adherence reports, and automatically refill prescriptions.
