Yes, this is a much beneficial app for the people who have to take medicines regularly but they often forget to do. This application has launched by a healthcare company on Sunday, March 29. It is now available for free download for both Android and iOS operating systems.
The new health application got the name as “MyHealthSaverz” has been developed by HealthSaverz. The new app is now available to download and use for both Android and iOS users globally. Furthermore, it is also available for non-smartphone users who can get SMS reminders about taking medicines on time after registration. Beside Hindi and English language, the reminder application is also available in 10 other languages.
According to the co-founder of the company, Ryan Albuquerque:
“The need for a medicine reminder service was conceived out of a combination of personal experience, feedback from friends and family and customer discussions.”
“As we thought about how to work on improving medicine adherence, we asked ourselves – `how can we use technology to make this more effective? This led us to MyHealthSaverz which uses mobile technology to improve health services,” he added.
The company told the reason of making this useful health application that the full benefits of medicines in treating health conditions are often not realized, just because more than 50 percent of patients do not take medicines according to prescribed timings. It will help the patients to remind their medicine timings respectively. The app will serve the patients as their health care manager, the company said.
“In fact, the cost of non-adherence has been estimated at USD 100 billion to USD 300 billion annually, including costs from avoidable hospitalisations, nursing home admissions and premature deaths.” Ryan said.
