U.S. reg­u­la­tors ap­prove first dig­i­tal pill to track pa­tients.

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

WASH­ING­TON» The U.S. Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion has ap­proved the first dig­i­tal pill that can track whether pa­tients have taken their medicine.

The tech­nol­ogy is in­tended to help pre­vent dan­ger­ous emer­gen­cies when pa­tients don’t take their med­i­ca­tion.

But the drug­maker must con­vince in­sur­ers to pay for the tech­nol­ogy, which hasn’t been shown to im­prove pa­tient’s med­i­ca­tion com­pli­ance.
