PharMed Solutions Launches Innovative iPhone App - MedAssist QuickList - Aiding Patients with Their Prescriptions(June 07, 2011)
ATLANTA, June 1, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PharMed Solutions, www.ipharmed.com, a technology-focused medication management company, announces the launch of MedAssist QuickList™ for the iPhone. MedAssist Quicklist is a simple to use, interactive application that allows patients to manage their prescription medications from their iPhone.
By providing a list of medications - available at all times to the patient, their doctor, family members, even emergency personnel if necessary - PharMed Solutions' iPhone app, MedAssist QuickList, ensures a peace of mind critical to a patient receiving proper care. App users may even enjoy exclusive savings on prescription drugs and free drug reviews through the application's additional FinancialRx service. Information on FinancialRx and its drug reviews are available for a limited time by downloading the app. Here is a short YouTube video on how the application works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pi5QmKhPoyM
PharMed Solutions' CEO, Dr. Oluponmile "Ponle" Aboyeji, Pharm.D., explains the value of MedAssist QuickList: "As a pharmacist, I've seen a great need for a universal medication record – people don't always know the names of their medications and often do not keep any reference to remember them. The patients that do keep a record generally write their medications on a piece of paper that quickly deteriorates. I've even seen a medication list on the back of a doctor's business card. MedAssist Quicklist assists patients with managing their medications and enables healthcare providers to provide optimum care in managing what their patients are taking."
PharMed Solutions designs products and provides services focused on simplifying medication use and increasing patients' knowledge of today's myriad prescription choices. Founded and operated by pharmacists and information technology experts, PharMed Solutions recognizes the growing importance of connecting the patient to their medications.
"Products like MedAssist QuickList help make patient care more transparent and helps prescription and over the counter drug information flow through the continuum of care," says Dr. Aboyeji. "Seamlessly transferring between different sectors of healthcare, these products can prevent adverse medical events and prevent the unnecessary costs that would result."
The team at PharMed Solutions is dedicated to improving the adherence to meds through innovative and easy-to-use technology. Future plans call for expansion to all major mobile and web-based platforms, expanding patient outreach to all those with a smartphone. By technologically connecting people to their daily medicines, PharMed Solutions will increase interaction between patients, pharmacists, drug companies and healthcare providers with their innovative iPhone application.
