Sparrow Hospital and Michigan State University are teaming up to find ways to help seniors better manage their medication.

They got a $75,000 grant to create a mobile app that would remind seniors when to take which pills.

Research shows nearly half the people with chronic illnesses don't take their medication as prescribed. It also shows medication mismanagement causes thousands of deaths every year.
