Drugs.com Now Offers Medication Reminder iPhone App
Clinical drug information resource Drugs.com is now offering a comprehensive Pill Reminder application for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Called "My Meds", the app is an both a a pill reminder and Personal Medication Record (PMR) app for iPhone or iPod touch. The app can be used to help manage any combination of medications, birth control pills, vitamins and supplements.
My Meds helps to remind patients when to take and refill their medications. The intuitive interface allows users to build a list of medications and setup reminders utilizing a comprehensive built-in medication database. Patients can store unique records such as drug photos, pharmacy contact information, special prescription notes and calendar history. The app also provides quick access to trusted medical information covering safe use, side effects, dosage, pill ID, pregnancy warnings, drug interactions and more.
"As a pharmacist, I am very excited to be offering a new mobile application that could greatly improve safety for those taking prescription medications. We hope it will help simplify the lives of many Americans by helping to organize their drug information and greatly improve patient compliance," said Philip Thornton, CEO of Drugs.com. "After the success of our Pill Identifier and Medical Information apps, we are confident this latest addition to our mobile portfolio will be very well received."
The average adherence rate (the degree to which patients correctly follow prescription instructions) for medicines taken only once daily is nearly 80 percent, compared to about 50 percent for treatments that must be taken 4 times a day. As many as 75 percent of patients (and 50 percent of chronically ill patients) fail to adhere to, or comply with physician prescribed treatment regimens.
