FDA approves pill with sensor that digitally tracks ingestion of the medicine

FDA approved the first drug in the U.S. with a digital ingestion tracking system. The pill has an ingestible sensor embedded in the pill that records that the medication was taken. The sensor of the pill sends a message to a wearable patch that transmits the information to a mobile application so that patients can track the ingestion of the medication on their smart phone.
