Empowering its customers with new ways to manage their health, MobileHelp®, a leader in mobile Personal Emergency Response System (M-PERS) solutions, today announced the launch of a new medication reminder application.
Designed to help its customers maintain an independent lifestyle, the new application will provide users with an easy-to-use tool to manage their scheduled medications, in order to avoid missing one, or taking too much of another, either of which can be dangerous and expensive for seniors.
“We know medication errors cost the healthcare system billions of dollar per year, and that people older than 65 have a medication error rate nearly seven times greater than those younger than 65 – primarily because they simply have more medications to manage,” said Robert Flippo, MobileHelp CEO. “This application was designed to prevent those kinds of errors from happening.”
The new application works in conjunction with the company’s mobile personal emergency response system and the MobileHelp Connect™ web portal, and provides the following features and benefits for users:
- A medication reminder alert through vocal announcement, which is pushed out through the MobileHelp cellular base station – acting as a medication “alarm clock;”
- A view of important prescription information, such as dosage days and times;
- The ability to add new prescription information; and
- The ability to set and change medication schedules.
When the customer acknowledges the vocal medication reminder with a push of the device’s reset button, the main dashboard of the MobileHelp Connect web portal will immediately reflect the updated information, giving users and authorized caregivers the ability to track medication adherence.
“Our customers consistently tell us they want tools to help them take control of their own health management,” said Flippo. “This new application will allow them to better manage their medications, giving them – and their loved ones – peace of mind around one of the more complicated aspects of maintaining a healthy and independent lifestyle.”

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impac...

2015 predictions circa 1970: houses anticipate our needs and adapt, city infrastructure is citizen and situation aware, office buildings identify and preprocess you. Today smart buildings have no such collective conscience, no shared set of fundamental services to identify, predict and synchronize around us. LiveSpace and M2Mi are changing that. LiveSpace Smart Environment devices deliver over the M2Mi IoT Platform real time presence, awareness and intent analytics as a service to local connecte...

Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
