New Medication Management And Adherence App, MyMeds, Introduced For iPhone, Android, Web; Unites Consumers, Pharmacists, Caregivers, Physicians
Date:7/10/2013

MINNEAPOLIS, July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MyMeds®  (www.my-meds.com), a new medication management and adherence app introduced for mobile (Apple iPhones, Android), PCs and tablets, has been introduced as the most secure, easy-to-use complete personal medication record (PMR) app available in the U.S.

Chosen as one of the two best medication adherence apps out of 160 reviewed in the Journal of American Pharmacists Association, MyMeds was created by board certified nephrologist Dr. Rajiv Shah so consumers can create, track and share medication records with their family, caregivers, doctors and pharmacists.  The goal: to reduce the $300 billion cost and devastating health consequences that result from patients' failures to take medication as prescribed.

Inspired by Dr. Shah's background in cognitive psychology and clinical medicine, MyMeds is the only medication adherence app that combines digital technology and human psychology. MyMeds uses proprietary WhyMeds™ technology to create subconscious memory associations between medication names and the reasons for taking the medications.  The MyMeds system includes a website application, mobile applications for Android & iPhone, data storage on a HIPAA-compliant cloud server and a medications database with more than 14,000 prescription and over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, herbal supplements and birth control. 

"At the core of MyMeds is a team approach to improving medication adherence – and ultimately, improving health – that unites pharmacists, caregivers, patients, relatives and physicians," says Dr. Shah.  MyMeds enables users to:

  • Invite their doctor, pharmacist or caregiver to view or edit their medication profile and share medication records with them by email, text or print-out.
  • Set and receive pill reminders at multiple times that tell users which medication to take and when, and track missed doses of medication so physicians and caregivers can evaluate medication adherence.
  • Record drug allergies, doctors and pharmacies; locate a pharmacy from anywhere with a built-in map feature, keep track of all immunization records and create medication profiles for everyone in their family and under their care, complete with email pill reminders and mobile phone alarms.

Consumers may subscribe to MyMeds for $9.99/year from the MyMeds Web site (www.my-meds.com). After purchasing the subscription and creating a password-protected MyMeds account on the Website, users can download the accompanying mobile app from the iTunes app store or Google Play.  

MEDIA/BLOGGER NOTE: Images of MyMeds screens, interviews with Dr. Shah, and demo codes for trying out MyMeds are available by emailing Alison Buckneberg at Alison@maccabee.com or calling 612-337-0087.
