Dr. Fudin, would you please comment on this article? This sounds like something from The Twilight Zone, and the thought is frightening to me! You can’t make this stuff up!

Jacqueline,  The pills don;t actually “talk”. When a patient takes their dose, the software recognizes when a pil is removed from the device and it communicates that to the pharmacy where it was dispensed, so that they can monitor compliance.
