Never forget your meds again..there’s an app for that
MediSafe Project is the first mobile health app that not only reminds you when it’s time to take your medication, but will also send an alert to a designated caretaker, spouse, family member friend if you miss taking a scheduled dose.
MediSafe Project’s co-founding brothers Rotem and Omri ‘Bob’ Shor started the company when their diabetic father double-dosed on insulin. They understood if they were more involved in reviewing their father’s daily medication and insulin regimens, it could change his behavior for the better and keep him healthier. The result is an app that is easy, even fun to use.
Medisafe is a simple app but loaded with features.
- Visual, Easy-to-use User Interface – The app’s homescreen resembles an interactive pillbox. Users can customize different meds to look like different pills, and the center MediSafe logo turns into a mouth swallowing meds when users signify taking medication by dragging preconfigured pills into it.
- FDA Drug Database Compatible – Users can type in medications’ generic or brand names, or take pictures with their devices’ cameras of the FDA’s universal National Drug Code (NDC) number – included on all original pharmaceutical packaging – and the correct pharmaceutical name, manufacturer and medication strength will automatically be recorded, ensuring an error-free medication list in the event of a medical emergency.
- Prescription Refill Alerts – Users receive alerts before medication courses are completed, allowing them to order prescription refills for medications taken chronically.
- Privacy Protections – Syncing medication schedules with caretakers is optional. Aggregated usage statistics are anonymous. Viral sharing is limited to email.
Medisafe is a must have app for anyone taking regular medication..it could save lives..Statitistics from the US reveal that more than 700,000 people were hospitalized in 2008 because they skipped or took incorrect dosages. Every 19 minutes an American dies because of medication non-compliance.
