Irody is best known for its MyPillSense app, which allows a smartphone to scan and identify medications. The app is used to reduce patient medication errors, which are common and can increase medical costs and complications. Irody uses its ActivPrescription computer vision technology to scan a pill in its MyPillSense app, while computer vision algorithms process images to identify the pills. Once the app identifies the actual pill, it can warn about medication errors and alert a patient if it is the wrong pill, the wrong dosage amount or if they've already taken the pill that day.

The MyPillSense app is still in beta, but users can find additional information on the Irody website. Pictured above is a sample screenshot of the MyPillSense app identifying a set of pills.
