eCAP™ Smart Bottle now available for liquid dosing

Ottawa, May 27, 2015. Information Mediary Corporation (IMC) continues to revolutionize medication adherence packaging with its new eCAP™ child-resistant, senior-friendly, solid and liquid dose dispenser. The new eCAP™ will be featured at the 2015 NACDS Convention in Denver this August.

eCAP™ can be read using a smart device, such as an NFC (near field communication) enabled Android phone, with which patients can upload their dosing history in their homes. A low-power Bluetooth version is going to be released 2016 and will work with both Android and iOS devices.

“Information Mediary Corporation has been the global leader in smart blisters and bottles since 2002. Med-ic smart blisters can be found in a range of pharmaceutical blister cards used for clinical trials. The combination of Med-ic® smart blister technology and the new eCAP™ standard bottle format gives pharmacy chains, brand managers, and clinical trials groups easy access to the best of both worlds with our smart, eco-friendly designs”, says Michael Petersen, Chief Operating Officer of Information Mediary Corporation.

New Research Paradigm:

Apple’s Tim Cook wants to stand Clinical Research on its head and, if anyone can disrupt Clinical Research, it is probably Apple. Med-ic smart blisters give the research team instant access to patient adherence data and the ability to coach patients to be compliant with their medication. The old argument about not wanting clinical trial subjects to be more compliant than those patients who will eventually use the medication in the real world is now officially relegated to the dustbin. Post hoc data “clean up” will one day soon be as irrelevant as dialling a rotary phone. Some Big Pharma research teams are already embracing compliance data; others are ready to jump in. Soon, clinical research will not be defensible without smart blisters, compliance data and full visibility. See for details.

The World's Most Accurate Low-Cost RFID Sensors

Information Mediary Corporation (IMC) manufactures a range of intelligent devices that includes the award-winning Med-ic® and eCap™ electronic compliance monitors (ECM©s). ECMs address the problem of poor patient compliance with prescribed medication by monitoring medication taking behavior in real time.

To complement its compliance-monitoring devices, IMC develops data systems, displays, and statistical analytical techniques to facilitate a wide variety of related applications. IMC also carries out R&D for custom applications involving the integration of electronics, sensors, printed sensor grids, NFC, RFID, Bluetooth and other technologies.

IMC has developed low-cost, single-chip RFID and NFC sensor technology, RFID readers, and printed electronics. Strict validation and adherence to GMP and ISO9001 processes ensure these products exceed pharmaceutical and logistics standards.

For further information, please see the following product descriptions.


The Med-ic® Electronic Compliance Monitor (ECM©) is a revolutionary solution to the problem of patient non-compliance with prescribed medication. Developed by smart packaging experts IMC, the Med-ic ECM tracks medication usage for any blister packaging format without active patient input.



eCAP™ is an extension of the Med-ic® smart package concept to the medication vial. In conjunction with Rexam, a global leader in the design and manufacturing of pharmacy vials, IMC's eCAP provides a flexible, dynamic, reliable and cost-effective compliance solution.



The CertiScan® RFID Reader and associated Software is IMC's proprietary, secure solution to downloading Med-ic® ECM© data. The compliance data captured by the reader are stored on a PC where they are displayed via an intuitive interface, allowing the clinician to interact knowledgeably with the patient around medication-taking behavior. CertiScan is compliant with 21 CFR Part 11.
