RememberItNow! Launches Mobile Medication Reminder and eHealth Service

Easy-to-use online service empowers people to take control of their health with cell phone medication and event reminders, a personal health record, and private care community.

Orinda, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2010 -- RememberItNow! LLC announced the launch today of the first eHealth service which helps people 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 on the go. It improves medication compliance, overall health, and keeps everyone connected: patients, family, healthcare providers, and more.

RememberItNow! is for people who want an easy way to take control of their health, starting with their medications.

According to the National Council on Patient Information and Education, an estimated 32 million Americans take three or more medications daily. However, taking medications correctly can be a challenge. Nearly 50% of people don’t take their medications as prescribed.

The number one reason patients are non-compliant is because they simply forget. The total annual healthcare costs in the U.S. that results from patient non-compliance is enormous. The Journal of American Pharmacy Association has estimated the cost at $177 billion. Other reports put the cost of non-compliance closer to $300 billion. RememberItNow! helps control healthcare costs by helping people take the right medication, at the right time, and in the right dose.

RememberItNow! is for the 100+ million Americans with chronic diseases who want to spend less time worrying about following the doctor’s orders. It’s for the estimated 65 million Americans reported by AARP who serve as caregivers, and need help coordinating care. And it’s for employers who struggle with the expense of providing healthcare benefits.

“RememberItNow! was born out of my desire to help my 80-year-old father remember to take his medications and stay healthier”, reports Pamela Swingley, CEO and founder of RememberItNow!. “I wanted a way to collaborate on his health care without intruding in his life. I was frustrated with the solutions that were available because they were either too technically complex for Dad, or much too basic; your typical paper schedules and alarms."

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 to use, flexible for different health situations, uses familiar terminology and contains health tools that fit the patient's situation, not the doctors.

“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.

RememberItNow! sends SMS text messages or 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.”

RememberItNow! connects patients, family, caregivers, and health care providers through a private care community. The community can be used to coordinate care, support long-distance caregiving and provide peace of mind for family members.

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.

RememberItNow! is available at Basic plans are free and premium plans start at $4.99 a month. All paid plans include a 30-day free trial.

RememberItNow! makes eHealth easy. Designed from the patient's point-of-view, it is simple to schedule cell phone medication reminders, maintain a personal health record, and create a care community. Getting started is fast and free.

RememberItNow's patient-centric SaaS platform is also available to healthcare providers, employers, and long-term care facilities. Headquartered in Orinda, CA, RememberItNow! is privately held.
