Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) is an environment which connects all the physical things or objects through the internet. IoT has many applications such as smart home, smart healthcare, smart city, etc. Majorly IoT healthcare system is developed for patients, hospitals and healthcare centres that are regularly taking care of patients and also checks whether the patient has taken the prescribed medicine or not. Especially, elder people are not having proper care. Recently, people spend most of their money in Hospitals and medicines only. Hence, it proves our negligence towards our health. Not only that, most of the people are moving abroad leaving their old parents in their hometowns, so that they cannot take care of their parent’s health. Not only the elders are suffering but also the visually challenged people are suffering a lot to intake the medicines properly. A smart pill box can be very helpful if you take many types of medications each day. I offer a free pill box that has 5 compartments that will hold each day’s worth of medication. If you order more than 5 prescription medications with our pharmacy, you qualify for a free pill box. It is easy for the seniors to take pills in a correct time. Medication reminders prevent this from happening. There is nothing your senior has to read or figure out. They simply need to take the pills in the compartment after the reminder beeps. If it comes to blind people it’s really a big issue to maintain the medication schedule and there might be a chance that blind people may take wrong medicines due to their lack of vision. To overcome all the issues and impossibilities in medication field I propose a project model where normal people as well as blind people both can be beneficiary.
