Once relegated to early adopters and casual home users, VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) has matured. An essential element of any unified communications (UC) system, it is now the standard method of voice communication in business, education, government and healthcare.

Ypsomed is a leader in the development and manufacturing of injection and infusion systems. The company is keenly aware of the multi-billion dollar problem of poor medication adherence and the need to measure medicine intake and ensure doses are taken at the correct time.
Ypsomed sought to create a digital solution for medication adherence monitoring and smart device management for contract research organizations’ (CROs) use in clinical trials, including self-injection systems for trial participants to administer medications at home.
