San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
The MedFolio Electronic Pillbox was honored with the “Silver Award” at the 2011 New Product & Technology Awards. The New Product and Technology Awards, hosted by the Mature Market Resource Center, are granted to companies that service the needs of aging adults and their families. The 2011 judging panel included representatives from top print & online news sources that feature content for seniors and retirees. The MedFolio Electronic Pillbox received praise for its innovative electronic pillbox technology which helps streamline medication management, organizing dosing schedules for patients with complex medication regimens. For seniors on the go, MedFolio’s device sends alerts via e-mail and text message, aiding patients who may otherwise struggle with medication adherence.
MedFolio, a San Francisco based medical technology company, was also recognized for their MedFolio Cares Program, earning a “Bronze” award in the service category. The MedFolio Cares Program allows patients and their families to interact one-on-one with a licensed pharmacist in the setup and operation of their MedFolio Pillbox. President Julie Fulmer-Mason, a veteran pharmacist and entrepreneur, has spent her career helping patients and caregivers effectively understand and communicate their medication therapy, and is excited that the company's efforts have been so well received.
MedFolio differs from other pillbox manufacturers because it fully integrates into modern lifestyles. While a myriad of single-function pillboxes and smart phone applications are available, the MedFolio Electronic Pillbox is the only device that truly functions across all platforms, instantly connecting the patient with their medication schedule via computer, e-mail, text message and the device itself. The MedFolio Electronic Pillbox utilizes easy-to-use computer software that syncs directly to the device, which then stores all medication information internally. The result is that discussions regarding dosing schedules are conducted in an organized and well-informed manner, vastly improving communication between the patient, caregiver, and healthcare provider.
MedFolio developed the software to ensure that it was as intuitive and easy-to-use as possible. Included with the device are comprehensive video tutorials to guide users step-by-step through the setup of the device and dosing schedules. In response to the demand for a trained professional in the setup and management of the complex medication schedules, MedFolio launched the award-winning MedFolio Cares program, offering the guidance of a licensed pharmacist at home. MedFolio Cares assists caregivers and patients with the installation of the device, as well as the ongoing management of individualized medication regimens.
While many patients may strive to retain independence, it is by utilizing tools like the MedFolio Electronic Pillbox that caregivers and patients can have the piece of mind to achieve it. Proper medication adherence is a critical aspect of maintaining health and it has never been easier to do so with the MedFolio Electronic Pillbox.
