New App to Track Meds Including Pill Reminder

ZURICH, February 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Drug Tracking Simplified

Sanovation AG has released the new medical app TrackMyMeds. With TrackMyMeds patients can scan their meds, set up intake or application alerts to ensure regular drug intake and track the personal medication history. It serves as a medication memory; helping not to forget taking the meds, remembering the name of a drug or recalling the precise dosage when talking to a medical care provider.

All pharmaceutical drugs should be taken as prescribed by the doctor

The general need for such an application is comprehensible; A regular intake of medicine is not easy to maintain. However, not taking prescribed drugs regularly is potentially very harmful. Any doctor will face some challenges with a patient who does not take his pills as prescribed. It might have serious implications on the treatment outcome. The problem of an irregular medication can concern anybody. Therefore Sanovation has released the pill reminder TrackMyMeds.

Treatment success can be enhanced by regular intake / application

What can be done to enhance and ensure regular medication? Research has shown that health care support via mobile phones improves treatment outcomes and especially regular reminders have the largest impact on improving medication adherence. In other words, medication adherence could be increased by according measurements. Therefore people should be reminded about their drug intake. That is why TrackMyMeds offers reminders via mobile phones, as it aims to support the patient in improving a regular and controlled drug intake.

Take the medicine using TrackMyMeds

Any dr, clinic and pharmacy could urge the patients to be aided by a pill reminder, such as the TrackMyMeds app. This way, on one hand, the regularity of the drug intake is increased and at the same time the medical care provider can also monitor any deviation from the prescribed treatment. The actual potential for success of a treatment can be evaluated much more accurately. The patient on an individual level, as well as medicine in general, benefits from such improved treatment and detailed understanding of its potential.

Liability exclusion / warning: Sanovation AG does not take any responsibility for incorrect intake or application of drugs. Neither does Sanovation take any responsibility for problems regarding the functionality, accuracy and completeness of the reminders. It can happen that reminders do not work due to technical problems therefore the full responsibility regarding a correct medication remains in the hands of the patient. Always follow the directions of your doctor or pharmacist.
