CHICAGO – Rush University Medical Center has begun using medication containing an ingestible sensor from Proteus Digital Health to help patients manage hypertension. The smart pill, called Proteus Discover, works together with a mobile app and wearable sensor patch. “Some patients take multiple medications a day, and during busy times a patient may forget to take their required dose that is important for managing a chronic health condition, or multiple conditions,” said Dr. Anthony Perry, vice president for population health and ambulatory services at Rush, in a statement. “If that happens with Proteus Discover, the patient will receive a text notification of the missed dose. Perry said Rush is the first health care provider in Illinois to offer Proteus Discover, and one of only eight health systems across the country using the innovative medication.
