That's why Rexam, the world's leading manufacturer of prescription vials, and Med Time Technology, Inc., a leader in medication management solutions, teamed up to introduce a breakthrough pharmaceutical closure known as "The Pill Timer," which has been designed for compatibility with Rexam's prescription vial.

The Pill Timer software can be programmed with most prescribed drug regimens. The Pill Timer enables pharmacists, patients and healthcare providers to program audio and visual alerts to help people properly take their prescription medication "As Prescribed". Helping people take prescription medication correctly will dramatically improve patient treatment outcomes and significantly reduce preventable ER visits and costly hospitalizations.

According to Steve Duda, Director of Pharmacy at Henry Ford Health System, one of the first healthcare organizations to adopt the new package, "The use of the Pill Timer will enable Henry Ford to help chronically ill patients manage their medication more effectively. It's an important breakthrough for our patients. We're proud to be early adopters of this medication management system."

The Pill Timer represents the commitment from Rexam and Med Time to provide reliable, cost effective medication management tools for today's pharmacies and patients.

"Our partnership with Med Time Technology illustrates our ongoing efforts to respond to consumer needs with products that create value," said Pat O'Connell, Rexam's VP of Sales and Marketing. "The Pill Timer adherence closure is a major step forward in medication compliance for pharmaceutical packaging."
