App lets you check adherence

May 22, 2013

App uses cloud-sync technology to send alerts when users miss a medication dose.

 

You and your patients also may find the MediSafe Project pillbox app helpful. It uses cloud-sync technology to send alerts to caretakers, family, and friends when users miss a medication dose. The newly launched version 2.0 allows users to email a personalized list of medication adherence statistics to their physicians, giving doctors the ability to extend care into the home between visits. Adherence rates are color-coded to help users understand how well they are adhering to their prescribed medication regimens.

Other new features allow users to:

  • adjust medication refill reminders according to preference and

  • separate medications into different user profiles when overseeing regimens for multiple people.

To protect privacy, no patient identity information is included; users can add it if they choose to do so.

The app can be downloaded at not cost in Google Play and iTunes app stores, but the 2.0 update currently is available only for Android devices. An iOS update will be available in iTunes in June.
