Innovation Hub

Changing Health Care, One Invention At A Time

By Kara Miller


The devices we discussed in-studio: Vecna Medical's is seen on the left; the GlowCap from Vitality on the right.

We turn now to inventions that could change your experience at the doctor’s office, at a hospital — and even how you administer medicines at home.

And we'll talk about two inventions: The GlowCap, from Vitality -- a little pill bottle that reminds you to take your medications and tells you if you don't -- and an invention from Vecna that makes some scans go faster.
