Care4Today Mobile Health Manager launched a Patient Dashboard for health care providers and pharmacies to provide timely monitoring of self-reported medication adherence for their patients.
With the new offering, patients can opt in to provide their physician with a view of their ongoing medication adherence. And if they miss a dose, the physician or care provider can take appropriate action if necessary.
Care4Today uses an easy to understand color-coded system to prompt patients when it is time to take their medication.Care4Today Mobile Health Manager includes an up-to-date database containing 40,000 FDA-approved medications and 20,000 images inclusive of generic and brand name medications. The service uses an easy to understand color-coded system to prompt patients when it is time to take their medication. Each reminder message prompts a response that is recorded in the user’s adherence report. The app is a secure, two-way messaging platform that works on almost all mobile phones including basic feature phones.
“One of the challenges a physician faces is going weeks or even months between appointments with a given patient. Using the new patient dashboard on the Care4Today Mobile Health Manager, we have the opportunity to monitor patients remotely,” said Tony Mills, M.D., medical director at the Southern California Men’s Medical Group. “We use technology to treat patients when they are in the hospital. Why shouldn’t we use technology to keep patients out of the hospital as well?”
To meet the health care needs of the more than 37 million people in the United States who speak Spanish, the new version includes a Spanish-language option.
