You are at an urgent care clinic because either you or a loved one is feeling really sick. What happens when you first walk in? The secretary hands over to you that annoying list of questions on a clipboard. You find yourself sitting in the waiting room for 30 minutes filling out this form and then that wretched question comes up; “List all Current Medication(s)”. Now, if you’re taking multiple medications, you’ll more than likely find yourself sitting there thinking… and thinking… and thinking. Sometimes you might miss one, and it could be an important one.
Many people have their own solution to this problem. Some may keep a little piece of paper in their wallet or purse. Some may have it listed on their phone. And some might have a special app similar to this one, but not quite. This is the Swiss army knife of medication reminder apps and it also is secure, ensuring the privacy of your information.
The app itself lets you do the following:
- Receive reminders when it’s time to take a med.
- Receive Reminders when it’s time to refill a prescription.
- Records when medications are taken.
- Print a preformatted schedule for yourself.
- Uses your phone’s camera to take a picture of the medication bottle. All of the information on the bottle will be neatly organized in the application.
- You can record if and when you have symptoms. You can share this information with your doctors or family members privately. Document symptoms and privately share updates with family members.
- You can keep track of appointments and share them with people.
- Formatted to submit information to insurance providers.
For those of you out there who do not grab their phone first thing in the morning, this app is available for the Apple Watch. Now, I do not own an Apple Watch, but this app alone makes me tempted to go buy one for myself!
