Evondos® is an advanced eHealth platform which not only enables automatic medicine dispensing, but also two-way communication in text and symbols between the client, caregiver and family members. In the future, it will be possible to integrate also other devices and functions into the service that will support the client’s self-care.

EVONDOS MEETS THE GLOBAL CHALLENGES OF HEALTHCARE
The ageing population, concern for the adequacy resources in care work and the digitising environment create a need to develop the methods of elderly care. The Evondos® service meets the global challenges of healthcare, among the most significant of which are the dosing errors in long-term medical treatment, lack of medical adherence, the increasing need for home care, and the ever lessening personnel and economic resources in the public sector.
The Evondos® automated medicine dispensing robot and the supporting Telecare System allow us to considerably improve the patient’s medical adherence and safety by decreasing the occurrence of human errors in dispensing medication. Therefore, the patient’s ability to function remains good so that he or she can live at home longer and the use of more expensive forms of care is postponed.
Direct savings in home care costs are obtained when the need for home care visits related to medicine dispensing is declining. While the automatic medicine dispensing robot dispenses the medication at the right time and dosage, the caregiver is free to focus on actual care work and interacting with the patient.
