Auburn University's Harrison School of Pharmacy Incorporates Med-eMonitor(TM) and Med-eXpert Systems into Retail Pharmacy Teaching
ROCKVILLE, Md., July 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- InforMedix Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: IFMX) is pleased to announce that Auburn University's Harrison School of Pharmacy has successfully incorporated InforMedix's Med-eMonitor and Med-eXpert Systems into its teaching curriculum, to teach the role of the community pharmacist in ensuring proper medication adherence and holistic health management and consulting. Acting as a "community pharmacist," a team of pharmacy students and their advisors evaluated pharmacy early practice experience patients for potential benefit from the Med-eMonitor smart pillbox and Med-eXpert information system, which provides real-time, customizable, actionable information on the medication adherence and health status of chronically ill patients. They selected a woman taking 14 different medications, who is taking these medications to treat congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, chronic pain, and to reduce her risk of stroke. In addition to monitoring the adherence for each of the 14 medications, the patient is being monitored for general health status, and for any changes to her prescribed medication regimen. Benefitting from the urgent alerts being sent from Med-eXpert to the student pharmacist and family members who worked together to ensure that the patient remained adherent to her medication and that her health remained stable, the patient also took her Med-eMonitor with her on vacation to maintain these benefits while away.
The Med-eMonitor and Med-eXpert Systems received strongly positive
reviews from the patient, her family members, and pharmacy faculty members
at Auburn's Harrison School of Pharmacy. Auburn University has an
international reputation for evaluating and teaching how cutting edge
