How Rxremind was born
Medication reminder apps are complex, difficult to use and many times compromise your personal information and safety
Rxremind was born out of neccessity for a better medication reminder and pill tracking app. Their were a couple of apps during 2015 – 2016. Some had good features but no security of personal data and others had security compliance but adding and creating reminders was difficult. We wanted to create a system which took out the hassle of remembering medications. It should be simple, easy to use, should be able to create all sorts of reminders. It should work offline and all my data should not leave my phone. Long list of things which we could not find anywhere. Thus we consulted a team of retired doctors, talked with them on how we can built something which is simple and effective when it comes to taking medications and how we can help patients improve their medication adherence.
Thus, Rxremind was born as a medication adherence tool designed to help you take your medications, prescriptions, pills, vitamins on time. Rxremind in its simplest form is a pill tracking and medication tracking app. It is available both on IOS and Android Platform. It focuses on your medication adherence rate which shows you how well you comply with taking your medications. It helps you improve your medication adherence rate.
It is estimated that 3 out of 4 Americans do not take their medication as directed. Approximately 50% patients do not take there medications as prescribed. This poor adherence to medication leads to increased morbidity rates and death. poor medication adherence takes the lives of 125,000 Americans annually, and costs the health care system nearly $300 billion a year in additional doctor visits, emergency department visits and hospitalizations.
