It'll be interesting to see how this evolves, especially with the increase of porch pirates. It would be disastrous to patient safety if porch pirates steal meds from these unsecure delivery mechanisms. It would harm patients who need vital medication and also the receivers of the stolen (black market) meds. Hopefully, narcotics and other important meds are not delivered in the pill packs.

Although "preset" pills are valuable for patients that don't have dynamic changes with medications or dosing, they may not be as valuable for patients who are on medications that are titrated regularly such as coumadin.
