Instilling a sense of comfort and security in households possessing potentially abusable prescription medications.
Providing a strong line of defense against prescription medication abuse.
Biometric security restricts medication access to only authorized individuals
Unique physical identification access and passive prescription usage-monitoring leading to individualized patient care and support
Analyzing collected prescription usage statistics to employ new data-driven insights into the prevention and management of prescription use disorders
Our solution for defenseless households and at-risk patients. A unique prescription medication security device designed to provide individualized access and security while passively monitoring prescription usage rates of different medications.
In capturing real-time data concerning time-of-openings and bottle fill-level before and after openings, physicians and general health care providers will be better able to monitor adherence or diversion from prescribed regimens.
The collection of such accurate prescription data will hopefully allow us to identify trends in prescription usage statistics that are indicative of misuse or abuse. It is out hope that by preemptively identifying such behavior, the proper rehabilitation or intervention can be implemented.
The U.S. Opioid Epidemic has ballooned into a national crisis that undermines the livelihoods of the nation's citizens and precipitates significant economic burdens. NIH studies estimate 128 people die every day after overdosing on prescription opioids, and the CDC determined the annual "economic burden" associated with prescription opioid misuse in the United States to be $78.5 billion. This includes the costs of healthcare, post productivity, addiction treatment, and criminal justice involvement.
No one is immune to the effects of prescription opioid abuse, and unfortunately the externalities of these effects oftentimes reach individuals close to the user. Since 1999, the U.S. Opioid Epidemic has claimed the lives of over 500,000 individuals and changed the lives of millions of families across the nation.
The current safety and security measures surrounding prescription medications are in adequate in their ability to prevent and defend against prescription misuse and abuse. Very little is provided to patients in terms of means to promote prescription guidance or adherence which perpetuates an indifferent or unaware attitude in patients concerning the use and potential consequences associated with prescription drugs.
It is Cosmos's intent to provide both a secure and dependable means to protect prescription medications and to collect reliable prescription usage statistics to better understand trends in abuse and addiction.
