Medipense Inc., a Canadian medical device manufacturer has added an SMS alert service to the recently launched RxPense-Alert.com web site. Due to popular demand for a low cost SMS reminder service, Medipense has added the optional SMS alert feature to its popular free email reminder service. The SMS feature is purchased as a monthly subscription starting at $9.95 for North American clients.
RxPense® Medication Management and Remote Monitoring solutions are designed primarily for seniors or those with chronic conditions. For those and others who are guilty of not always taking medications on time, RxPense-Alert.com may be the simplest solution to improving medication adherence and staying healthy, longer.
RxPense® Alert is a very simple, personal email and SMS reminder service that will send an alert every time one needs a reminder to take medications, vitamins or even to perform a regular activity. Registration is FREE and setting up reminders is as easy as filling in a short form. Reminders may be one-time or recurring, daily or specific days. Details or notes may also be added to the email and dispatched as requested. Registration is a snap at http://www.Rxpense-Alert.com.
For those who simply want to receive an email reminder to take their pills, the service is always free. However, for those who would like to receive SMS alerts in addition to email, or in place of email, then a monthly subscription is required, starting at $9.95. Countries will be added as requested.
Study after study have demonstrated that something as simple as sending daily reminder messages may improve the uptake of pills by over 60% percent. This not only improves adherence, but can also reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and hospital re-admissions.
