Baby Boomer and Senior Support Services is now offering MED-READY (Personal Medication System). MED-READY is a reminder system that automatically dispenses medication and vitamin supplements in accordance with a patient's prescribed treatment program. It is a practical, low-cost solution that helps people get the right dose of medication at the right time. By properly adhering to a doctor's recommended medication regimen, patients are able to stay healthy, safe and possibly remain in their own homes longer.
MED-READY is easy to use: Simply load the appropriate dosage into the 28 tray slot and set the clock. Close the lid, and lock (the clock can be programmed for one to four times a day). Right pill, Right dose, Right time!
The MED-READY dispenser can also be monitored by a Care Center, which means if a patient misses a dose, the Care Center can follow-up and make sure adherence occurs.
Medication Management is a growing and costly problem for seniors and at-risk individuals. Almost 30% of all hospital admissions for people over the age of 65 are directly attributable to medication non-adherence and approximately 40% of people entering nursing homes do so because they are unable to self-medicate in their own homes.
