Regardless of whether you are a consumer who is prescribed medication on a daily basis or a healthcare professional who needs to make sure that the patient is taking certain medications, remembering the names and dosages of medications can sometimes be very difficult.
Fortunately, there is a medical technology industry and a medication tracking app development that makes it very easy to keep track of any important drug information (be it prescriptions or dosages).
Mobile Medical Innovation
Usually, mobile applications that are somehow related to healthcare are created for two reasons. The first reason – to make as much money as possible, is important for businessmen who create relatively simple fitness applications in order to enter the market with them, which is a rather lucrative market. The second reason is to improve the quality of medical services provided, which is already more interesting for doctors and hospitals, which, using their own applications, increase the level of communication with the patient.
Dedicated pill tracking apps are designed to simplify prescription and medication management. With the help of such programs, you can significantly reduce the risk of complications caused by taking the wrong medication, taking the wrong dosage of medication, or not taking any medication at all.
Common functions of drug tracking and calculating apps:
- Detailed instructions for the medication (composition, active ingredients, forms, possible side effects and interactions, indications for use).
- Calculate dosage based on age, weight, current health status and current medications that are already being taken.
- Medication reminders.
- Search for medicines by trade name, as well as suggestions for alternative pills.
- Search for medicines in available pharmacies in your city or country and their pricing policy.
For Whom Might This be Useful?
The benefits of drug tracking apps are available to a wide range of audiences, from consumers to pharmacists and doctors. Anyone can make a mistake when prescribing or taking medications, but this innovative development will reduce this risk to a minimum, making it easy to remember which pills should be taken and when, and which should not be taken at all.
This is especially true for those who are faced with a certain number of medications that need to be combined, or for those who need to constantly remember the names and dosages of a rather large number of medications.
