We're on a mission to reduce the frightening regularity of emergency room visits and cut ballooning healthcare costs

MedBox, a new mHealth app for iPhone and Apple Watch, aims to considerably reduce emergency room visits and preventable fatalities caused by medication misuse.

As only 50% of patients correctly follow their medication regimen (, the mobile app makes it easy for patients to remember to take medicine as directed. Push notification reminders are automatically sent to a patient’s iPhone or Apple Watch, prompting them take their medication at the right time each and every day.

"Using smart mobile technology we're on a mission to reduce the frightening regularity of emergency room visits while also cutting preventable healthcare costs," said, MedBox creator, Marc Fischer.

MedBox was designed with patients and caregivers in mind. Medical care features include:

  • Create medicine calendar schedules and easily set reminders
  • Control frequency, dosage, time and date schedules
  • Receive automated push notification reminders for iPhone and Apple Watch
  • Add unlimited Rx medications and dosage reminders
  • Capture photos of each pill or medication for easy reference

According to the National Institute of Health, $300 billion in medical expenses occur every year due from patients experiencing complications as a result of failing to comply with their medicine-schedule. MedBox seeks to provide enhanced healthcare services while simultaneously reducing the financial burden for families, medical insurers, and healthcare providers.
