Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reports that at least half of all Americans take at least one prescription drug, with one in six taking three or more medications. Since the cost and affordability of health care is of great concern, medication adherence has become one of the major areas of importance in the health care industry.
A new software company has been created to help with this problem. MedaCheck, LLC was created in June of 2012 by Dawn Sheanshang and Jeffery Shepard. The company was founded on a united goal to provide assistance with medication adherence. This idea eventually led them to the creation of the soon to be released to the public "The Virtual Pillbox."
The Virtual Pill Box would allow patients and their families to feel comfortable when filling their pillboxes, and adhering to a medication regimen. The Virtual Pillbox will give a snapshot of how the week’s pill box should look, complete with high-resolution pictures. It will also have the ability to report when a medication was taken, over the Internet with a Pharmacy Virtual Platform (PVP).
Jeffrey Shepard (CEO) admits that he started using the Virtual Pillbox himself with great success. "This product will change the way people take medication, making it very easy and helping them follow the orders of their doctor, it has worked for me." Shepard also explains that this product, currently in beta testing, will be the first of several software applications in the medication adherence space. "We are really close to opening up our product to a wide range of customers. It will be a wonderful change to the way that you interact with your daily medications."
