Drugs.com Launches iOS and Android Mobile App to Empower Patients and Providers Alike
Date:3/8/2013

NEW YORK, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Drugs.com, the leading online clinical drug resource, today announced they have launched the Drugs.com Medication Guide, a mobile app to facilitate patient engagement in their own medication management. The "Drugs.com Medication Guide" app is now available as a free download on the popular iOS and Android mobile platforms.

Utilizing the Drugs.com Medication Guide app, patients and caregivers can have instant access to their most recent personal medication records, saved drug interactions lists, and breaking FDA and health news tailored to their needs. In addition, consumers can easily navigate through the most trusted and unbiased sources of medical information to make educated health decisions.

"As the U.S. healthcare system moves through the upcoming stages of meaningful use, patients will be empowered to utilize mobile health apps to manage their medications and maintain wellness," said Philip Thornton , CEO of Drugs.com. "The latest Drugs.com Medication Guide app is a practical tool to shorten this learning curve for both patients and caregivers alike. Medication management, safety and adherence will simply become easier."

The Drugs.com app provides consumers with easy access to vital health information tools such as MedNotes, the Symptom Checker, and the Complete Drugs A to Z Index. In Mednotes, patients and caregivers can view and save drug and dose information, access specific FDA alerts, and store drug and food interactions all tailored to their active medication list. In addition, patients can confidently access the Mednotes tool when reviewing important medication lists with healthcare providers. The Symptom Checker, provided by Harvard Health Publications, guides a patient through a series of questions to help them pinpoint medical symptoms and make a more informed decision about the next steps toward diagnosis and treatment. The Complete A to Z Drug Index will provide a fast and accurate search on over 24,000 prescription and over-the-counter medications. Treatments can be browsed in 12 different categories, including by drug class, generic status, or condition.

In addition to these robust medication management tools, the Drugs.com app features the popular Pill Identifier Wizard that verifies a medication simply by entering an imprint, shape or color. Those consumers not sure how to spell a drug name can use the phonetic search. The Drug Interaction Checker tailors patient-specific drug and food interaction messages based on prescribed medication regimens, and the Q & A Support Groups provide a venue for patients to chat with others and ask questions about common conditions or related medications.

The Drugs.com app is available at no cost to users in the Apple and Google Play app stores, and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, iPod and Android. This new app joins other Drugs.com tools that have made the top paid medical apps list in the Apple App Store. The list includes the top 10 rated Pill Reminder app and the number one rated Pill Identifier app.
