People consume medicine in order to treat, prevent or diagnose diseases basically. Doctors prescribe medicines for patients according to their diagnoses. But what could have happened if that medicine couldn’t perform well due to its lack of required quality. Even that particular drug is the best way to cure, it won’t be able to cure the patient since it is not in its proper condition. So, being the medicine is not enough to perform its duty. It should be in its required condition. If a drug is required to act accordingly to the requirement, why won’t it act so? There can be various reasons which avoid the drug performing its duty due to different problems.
As in the process names mainly while manufacturing, storing, transporting, selling and delivering to the patient medicine can be damaged. Even if the manufacturer produces the medicine with best care and quality, it will not be able to give the required outcome due to the inabilities of storing under proper conditions. Since the medicines are highly sensitive material to temperature it should be kept under the preferable conditions to maintain its quality. And when medicine is transported from one place to another, stored and manufactured conditions can be changed drastically. Because sometimes when we order some medicine as online purchases the parcel of medicine will be shipped to the patient or to the consumer as a small parcel over different places which are in different environmental conditions. So, the possibility of being exposed to different temperature levels is high when in occasions like this. Then the original texture of the medicine can be changed when it reaches to the consumer’s hand. So, it may cause some other result after consuming such a medicine other than the expected output. And even the medicine is safely delivered to the consumer, it can be get damaged before he consumes it when it is in his hands. So, the preferable conditions should be kept till they consume the medicine.
And even in transportation of medicine also IoT technologies can be applied to ensure the safety of transportation. Using those techniques, we can monitor the path they take while delivering the order. Safety of the delivery can be ensured using these and get an idea about the sources of damages which can be occurred while delivering the medicine, so the relevant actions can be taken for those situations to prevent those in the future. So, the mobility won’t be a problem to overcome those situations when we use IoT technologies.
So, if we follow these methods in the processes from the medicine manufacturing to delivery to the consumer we will be able to ensure the effectiveness of the medicine we consume. Because those methods will diagnose, prevent and treat the damages which can cause damages to the medicine. So, these methods are acting like some sort of a treatment to the pill itself which you take. The new technological applications are acting like a doctor to the pill which is there to treat people. A doctor to the pill you take, don’t you think so?
