Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2007
ReminderMed is pleased to announce the launching of http://www.ReminderMed.com , a medication reminder service that is out to save lives.
Every year, 150,000,000 people in this country take a prescription medication. More than 100,000,000 of them take their medication incorrectly. Because of that, more than 125,000 of them will die.
Why do they take their medication incorrectly? Mostly because they forget.
ReminderMed believes it can save many of those lives with their new web based service at ReminderMed.com. ReminderMed.com reminds patients to take the correct medication at the correct time. All a patient needs is what most already carry with them most the time. A cell phone.
The service is easy to use, affordable and will help patients lead healthier lives.
According to ReminderMed President, Dr. David Auerbach, “Medication non-compliance is a huge problem in this country and abroad. It leads to inadequate patient treatment and persistence or worsening of the condition. This creates higher healthcare costs for patients, healthcare institutions and insurers. Medication compliance is poor for a variety of reasons. The appearance and names of medicines are confusing, but the main reason patients are non-compliant is that they simply forget to take their medicines. The goal of ReminderMed is to remind patients to take their medicine and to tell them which pill to take”.
Today, in this country, practically all adults, well into their 70’s, now own a cell phone. Virtually all cell phones manufactured now have SMS (text messaging) capability. Most adults into their 70’s also have access to the internet. Remindermed.com is an easy to use web site that allows anyone to enter their medication schedule into a data base.
ReminderMed is offering a free month to test the service. Simply go to http://www.ReminderMed.com to register.
