Developed by a loving daughter who knows the struggles of keeping track of a parent's revolving medical needs and multiple medications, MyMedManager™ is a new comprehensive, healthcare organizer designed to allow people of all ages or their caregivers to keep track of pertinent medical information. Presented in an appealing, easy-to-understand, and portable spiral binder, MyMedManager™ is the perfect tool for any senior citizen, person with multiple medications, CEO looking to cut healthcare costs, or anyone that is looking to take more control over their healthcare.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 7, 2009 -- To help ease the daunting task of keeping track of medical needs, including medications and screenings, an all-encompassing medical healthcare tool called MyMedManager™ was introduced today to patients, caregivers, and business executives concerned about the rising cost of healthcare.
This medical organizer is divided into two tabbed sections for quick reference. The first is for managing healthcare information such as medical history, screenings, test results, medical contact information. The second section is designed to manage medications including dosages, possible side effects and other notes on specific medications.
Today, nearly one in three Americans takes five or more prescriptions a week - often times from multiple physicians - and keeping track of the medications can be difficult. With the introduction of MyMedManager™, patients can now keep track of medical information effortlessly in a booklet that can be easily be taken to any doctor's office or hospital or used in case of an emergency.
The 30-page organizer was developed by Grace Bender, who for years helped take care of her mother and her multiple prescriptions and over-the-counter medications from various physicians. To ease the hassle for her mother, Grace developed charts to help her take them with greater ease.
Grace recalled, "We showed each physician and pharmacist her medication chart (and did this regularly). After the initial review, many medications were changed or stopped. She not only felt better physically, she felt more in control of her own health care. Working together, she and her physicians and pharmacists soon became a 'team.'"
MyMedManager™ is currently receiving rave reviews from healthcare experts, doctors and patients alike.
Tommy Thompson, former Secretary of Health and JHuman Services Department and a MyMedManager™ user said: "Taking medications, as directed, is critical to an individuals' well-being. Grace Bender's MyMedManager™ is a smart tool that patients use to remind them to take their medication on time and as directed. MyMedManager™ is also a useful instrument for physicians, healthcare providers, and pharmacists to review their patients' medications, to protect their life and improve their health."
Dr. Richard Perry (M.A.C.P) said: "During office visits, my patient was often uncertain about doses, names of medications, and important precautions. This quickly changed into an efficient, accurate review when the patient began using the MyMedManager™ medication chart."
Mill Moorhead, a MyMedManager™ user, said: "I was recently diagnosed with an illness, the treatment for which required me to take a number of powerful pain medications. The medications made me practically delirious and MyMedManager™ helped me keep track of the tests and medications I was taking. In my condition, I doubt that I would have been able to manage this combination of medical issues on my own."
And Saira A. Jan - M.S, Pharm.D, Director of Clinical Pharmacy management at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey and an Associate Professor at Rutgers State University of New Jersey - said: "MyMedManager™ has been extremely effective for our senior sessions here at Rutgers State University of New Jersey and Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey. The personal healthcare and medication organizer is the perfect tool for us! Many seniors are overwhelmed by their many doctor's appointments and medications, and what we have found is that using MyMedManager™ allows them to easily keep track of all of their healthcare and medication information all in one place. I highly recommend MyMedManager™!"
