REDDITCH, England — HealthNet on Monday released its PillManager mobile application across both Apple and Android platforms. The app allows consumers to track their own medication schedules and interact directly with their doctor or pharmacist for repeat prescriptions.
According to the developer, the app takes one of the most popular elements in mobile medication management — dosage notifications — and expands on it to provide users with a comprehensive handheld prescription tracking facility. They can submit a repeat request for any prescription directly to their pharmacist or doctor from within the app.
The app serves to eliminate many of compliance issues through both a reminder functionality and an automatic transmission of a letter of consent alongside every reorder. The app also maintains a full history of medications taken by the user. These records can, like reorders, be sent to a medical professional from within the app, allowing the user or another nominated individual to monitor consumption and prescription requirements.
