What does the app do?

This app helps you keep track of your medicines. It allows you to create a medication list and set reminders or prompts to remind you when to take a particular medicine. The app also allows you to record various measurements, activities (such as walking, running, cycling) and symptoms. It has provision to set prompts to remind you when your medication is running low. 
For the complete app description, go to either iTunes (apple)(external link) or Google Play (android)(external link) and for a detailed review, see Reviews.

  Consolidates medication reminders, measurement reminders and symptoms checks into a daily report.

✔  The measurement list is very comprehensive ranging from common measures such as weight, blood pressure and blood sugar to more unusual measures such as INR, lithium level, peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR).

  Has a team function to involve family as personal reminders and help motivate you to manage your medication.

  Has provision to create monthly progress reports to assess adherence.
 The app has the option of manually entering the medications or linking to medication databases from various European countries. There is no option to link to a NZ medication database. 

 The frequency of administration defaults to Daily, and could be skipped in error, leading to serious error e.g. low dose methotrexate comes with default Daily frequency. It would be better to disable default Daily frequency, so the user has to select the relevant frequency.

  Mode options are planned or as needed (PRN). This may be confusing for patients. Instead two buttons either “Regular” or “As needed” may be better option. Once the As needed (PRN) option is selected, there is no option to add instructions - the display is: “Only spontaneous”. These medications should have full instructions typed from the pharmacy label or omitted.

When reminders appear, the medication name, strength and administration time are listed. However, there are no complete label instructions. There is no general advice e.g. as a pop up window when medications are populated, advising patients to keep medications in original containers and to always read pharmacy labels. In addition, once the profile is populated there should be reminder to check instructions against the labels.

✘  There is no option to enter cautionary & advisory labels (e.g. with food), indication ( e.g. for PRN) or expiry date of the product (e.g. eye drops)

 There is no photo or shape and colour description to be selected for tablets and capsules. All forms of medication have the same icon – capsule. The graphics are simple - there is no use of colour.

  Measurement units are in mg/dl not in mmol/L and there is no option to choose.
