Management of medication is very important for acute illness and long term conditions. Helping people to manage complex medication regimes is objective of many initiatives aimed at avoiding readmission to hospital following by exacerbation and reducing probability of medication errors. In older adults, due to aging and physical & mental function decline, elderly people need to take number of drugs. In such scenario, management of complex medication is require for avoiding readmission to the hospital or before it seriously affects health of elderly. Forget to take prescribe medicine is one of the problem, so there are several products designed for solving problem, such as electronic medication reminder devices, smart phone reminder applications and many more. Due to development of smart phones in recent years, several applications were designed to solve medication reminder problem. However, it is not possible for all elderly people to make use of smart phone. Although smart phone application has more possibility of medication reminder, it should put more efforts on the technological gap, to make products more user friendly and easier to learned and used. In this paper we propose system that will help not only elderly people for medication reminder but also person who is facing same problem. Propose system is combination of automatic pill dispenser and smart phone application which will help user to manage complex medication regimes.
