There are by now numerous pill reminder devices, online and even in container. These tend to conentrate on the person that is supposed to take the pill.
At the same time, there are many cases where a caretaker should be notified that a pill is not being taken -- for instance by a mentally disabled
While no one can guarantee -- yet -- that the pills are not being flushed down the toilet, this electronic container would notify the caretaker that it hasn't been used by the patient.

||Jutta's idea, see list upper right called Electric Pillbox seems to be the same, I'll reread.
||jutta's idea seems to focus on making the container alarm, and it has been baked since.
||I'm talking about something that, while additive and certainly not a far cry from hers, seems distinct, i.e. notifying the doctor that a schizophrenic has not taken his pill.
||tc, you could be more specific by changing 'caretaker' to doctor and have notification via whatever is the most recent wireless inovation. just a sug.
||//While no one can guarantee -- yet -- that the pills are not being flushed down the toilet// Put RFID tags in the pills, and a reader on the U-bend of the toilet.
||It seems to me that the reader would scan a tag sooner or later if the pill WAS being taken.
||if you're testing anyway why watch him take it?
||Verifying compliance by a mentally disabled or mildly
demented patient who simply forgets or doesn't understand
is a different kettle of fish from enforcing it in a paranoid
schiophrenic who actively cheats <link>
