Easy-to-use online service empowers employees to take control of their health with cell phone medication and event reminders, a personal health record, and a private care community.
June 21, 2010, Orinda, CA – RememberItNow! LLC introduced today a new eHealth service which helps employees take medications correctly by sending reminders to their cell phone. RememberItNow! also makes it simple to maintain a personal health record and create an interactive private care community.
RememberItNow! is available from any browser at work, home, or smart phone. It improves medication compliance, overall health, and keeps everyone connected: patients, family, healthcare providers, and more.
RememberItNow! Helps Employers Cut Health Care Costs
Nearly 50% of people don’t take their medications as prescribed. The number one reason people are non-compliant is because they simply forget. The Journal of American Pharmacy Association has estimated the cost of noncompliance at $177 billion. Other reports put the cost of non-compliance closer to $300 billion.
The cost of non-compliance hits employers hard, as they struggle with the expense of providing healthcare benefits.
“Taking the right medication, at the right time, in the right dose keeps employees healthier and helps to control health care costs,” reports Pamela Swingley, CEO and founder of RememberItNow!.” To increase, adoption, RememberItNow! is designed to be very easy to use and to fit seamlessly with employees’ busy schedules.”
eHealth Made Easy
Unlike many other services that turn managing health into a major project, RememberItNow! makes eHealth easy. The software is designed from the patient’s point of view. It is intuitive and flexible for different health situations.
“Most web applications assume users are way more Internet savvy than they are, or want to be,” points out Swingley. “Managing medications is complex enough. We’ve focused on building our software to work the way people do.” It takes less than five minutes to get started with RememberItNow!, and online or phone support is available for those that need help.
Remember with Reminders
RememberItNow! sends SMS text messages, Push, and email reminders for medications and events to the user’s cell phone. Messages can be customized with special instructions, adjusted for time zones, and can be turned on or off for each activity.
Beta customer, Ray Garr, reports that RememberItNow! has greatly improved his health. “RememberItNow! has literally been a life saver for me. I get very busy at work, and remembering my pills isn’t a priority. Getting reminders is a nice way to keep me on my schedule, and it’s one less thing I have to worry about.”
Create a Care Community
RememberItNow! empowers employees to provide long-distance care to their loved ones through the private care community. The community can be used to coordinate care, share reports, and provide long distance care from the office. Users can invite family, caregivers, and health care providers to join with different privilege levels.
Maintain a Personal Health Record
In addition to tracking medication schedules and events, RememberItNow! users can record their medical history, manage contacts, keep a health journal, record bio-metrics and save their favorite website links.
With RememberItNow! Mobile, smart phone users have their medical details at hand. They can access their daily schedule and medical information, enter readings and make journal updates anywhere, at anytime.
