             Our senior design project is about MEDS (Medicine Expiration/refill Data application). This application will assist patients by notifying them when a medication needs a refill or is about to expire. MEDS will use an application to populate the patient’s personal database with every medicine that is added to his medicine databases. The application will control the expiration date and the refill date for each medication and display the result on the app screen. When a medicine that had been properly added to the device’s database is about to expire (30 days early notification) or run-out, MEDS will display the medicine name and condition (expired, or refill) on the screen.

According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), eighty two people die each day as a result of unintentional poisoning and another 1,941 are also treated in emergency departments daily and the number is one the rise. A poison is considered any substance including medications that is harmful to your body if to much is ingested, inhaled, injected, or absorbed through the skin.

compared to an existing medication management app such as MedCoach , MEDs has two essential  extra features which are, early refill notification that allows patients to refill their prescription ahead of time. in addition to that, MEDs can also inform  the user about medicine expiration date.
