Aging is a natural phenomenon, and maintaining quality of life for elderly people and for people with special needs is a challenge. Many physiological functions tend toward decline, and people suffer from several chronic conditions in later stages of life, which usually lead to high drug consumption. Medication noncompliance remains a common healthcare problem and affects patient health adversely in the developed as well as in the underdeveloped world. Patients with chronic illnesses are often burdened with high medication intake and less awareness of their medical conditions and routine, creating a challenging environment to promote medication compliance. Technological assistance like the emergence of smartphone echoes opportunities for utilization of health services with minimal interaction, portability, and pervasiveness. This paper focuses on an augmented reality/computer vision-based solution for drug compliance for elderly people; with this, patients will be having greater control over medication management easily and flexibly keeping in view the usage/learning constraints of senior citizens via Smart Assist. Smart Assist has expected to fulfill the unrestricted conditions of healthcare applications.
