Manage your medications

Medisafe is an all in one medication adherence app. The app connects patients and providers for superior medication management. This easy to use tracker is more than a medication list. It is a complete system designed for people taking multiple meds and/or are forgetful. It starts with a virtual pillbox and a health coach. Patients can log meds into a list, get educated on them, and get further educated on their condition. The app sends a digital reminder when it’s time to take a pill. With most people carrying smart phones it’s no wonder this app has had so much success. Patient management is just beginning! This app is linked to a provider portal where patients can connect with physicians and pharmacists. Doctors can monitor a patient's adherence and decide what course of actions to take. The coolest thing has to be the iConnect pill sorter that patients can purchase. It wirelessly connects to the app and automatically logs that pills were taken with just a lift of the lid.

Medisafe as a company has a clear platform of trying to eliminate medication non-adherence. It was founded by two brothers whose father accidentally took an extra dose of insulin that resulted in an emergency situation. The brothers put their heads together and Medisafe was born. Numerous studies have shown the application to increase medication adherence drastically in its users.
