MedSnap, a company from Birmingham, AL, has developed a new way to identify medications with a smartphone camera. Their product uses the camera of an iPhone to scan medications. The MedSnap ID app is used along with the accompanying MedSnap Life Surface precision imaging tool to identify pills. For times when pills get mixed up or loose pills are found, the MedSnap product can quickly and easily identify each pill. Users simply place the loose medication on the MedSnap Life Surface and snap a picture with their phone to determine what they have.
