/PRNewswire/ --
The new PillManager mobile app allows consumers to not only track their own
medication schedules, but also to interact directly with their doctor or
pharmacist for repeat prescriptions. Available on both Apple and Android
devices, the app revolutionises medication management through the
integration of essential benefits for both consumers and medical professionals.
The app takes one of the most popular elements of mobile medication
management; dosage notifications, and expands on it to provide users with a
comprehensive handheld prescription tracking facility. They can submit a
repeat request for any prescription directly to their pharmacist or doctor from
within the app.
This functionality builds strong relationships between the medical professional
and consumer, ensuring the longevity of both the commercial and personal
associations through familiarity and trust. Direct communication ensures
accuracy, while also removing the need for the completion and recording of
letters of consent. The electronic nature of correspondence means that both
parties can benefit from a full audit trail on all orders.
One of the most outstanding effects of the app is on compliance. Recent
studies suggest that wasted medications cost the industry over £300 million per
year, where repeat prescriptions are ordered without being needed and build
up in patients' homes. The app serves to eliminate many of these issues
through both the reminder functionality and the automatic transmission of a
letter of consent alongside every re-order. The app also maintains a full history
of medications taken by the user. These records can, like re-orders, be sent to
a medical professional from within the app, allowing the user or another
nominated individual to monitor consumption and prescription requirements.
The PillManager app is available now from the iTunes store and Google Play.
