The Global Mobile Award winners were announced yesterday in a special ceremony during the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. AT&T connected Vitality GlowCaps won in the Best Embedded Mobile Product/Device (Non Handsets) category.
"We're extremely proud to receive this award from the global mobile industry that recognizes the innovation and integration we're bringing to customers," said Glenn Lurie, president, emerging devices, AT&T. "AT&T connected Vitality GlowCaps are all about delivering a simple, easy to use, solution to consumers looking to maintain a prescription routine."

Each time the pill bottle is opened, adherence data is recorded and relayed to Vitality over the AT&T wireless network. This daily adherence information is used to compile periodic progress reports that are sent to patients, caregivers and doctors, and family members.
