We envision a Digital Healthcare world where adherence is no longer guesswork and patients are empowered to maximize the effectiveness of their medications.
Who we are
IMC is the global leader in smart medication adherence solutions, having supplied over a million units to the clinical trials and research markets. IMC manufactures iOS and Android NFC-enabled Med-ic Smart Blister Packages, eCAP Smart Medication Bottles and the temperature-aware Med-ic Smart Syringe Pack.
IMC is active in the AI-enabled digital health field, offering its HIPAA compliant, secure CertiScan clinical research adherence cloud. IMC’s latest Lilipond AI project is aimed at detecting opiate abuse early to avoid dependence and addiction.
What we believe
We design end-to-end solutions and conduct research and development primarily in the areas of pharmaceutical, logistics and supply chain compliance technologies. Our teams of talented and creative people integrate existing skills, forward-thinking, subject matter expertise and novel technologies into new inventions to realize our Vision. We are a global player in our fields of excellence and provide a stimulating, supportive, and rewarding environment for our employees and partners.
IMC espouses five core values: creativity; technical, financial and operational discipline; and common sense:
Creativity is based on a fundamental human quality – curiosity. Creative thinking comprises flexibility, originality, fluency, and associative and metaphorical thinking. By being curious and looking around us we can develop new solutions, abandon old tracks and forge new paths – “thinking outside the box”.
Scientific and technical expertise are required to convert creative thinking into real products and solutions. Fundamentals form the “grammar” of everyday development and engineering. Embracing fundamentals allows us to better understand our world.
Today’s global economy is organized through standards. Standards are based on disciplined processes, quality management systems, and controls and policies, as specified in the constitutions of ISO, GMP and other standards. Operational discipline promotes better communication, even across geographic and language barriers, and yields efficiency, reproducible quality, and allows us to satisfy customer requirements through timely delivery of high quality products. We converge the best of traditional and agile management concepts to enable rapid iterations of innovative solutions within the strict framework of regulatory standards.
Money is the basic business driver. It pays salaries, pays rent, and supports daily activities. In an ideal business, money is a renewable resource that must be managed and cared for. It is also a limited resource requiring respect. Sound financial management requires a fair approach to resource allocation and balanced management of risks, costs, benefits and profits.
Common sense is the acid test of every decision made by or for an individual. It is about prudence and sound judgment. Common sense is subjective and involves personal experience, study, research, knowledge and beliefs. The application of common sense to judging others’ decisions is difficult, because it requires not only one’s own view, but also an empathetic view of the world from the perspective of other people, cultures, environments, and educational backgrounds.
Started with a curious (thought – no that is not verbal) question about medication non-adherence (non-compliance back then) and how technology, if possible could help understand the “after weekend, Monday morning” patient. This query from the professor, the psychiatrist, Dr. Allan to Mr. Michael, the award winning entrepreneur, is how this led to the birth of the electronic content monitor (ECM), known throughout the clinical trial world as Med-ic.
