Pin It Now!

According to this article at xconomy Boston, the United States tax payers pay between $200 and $300 billion a year for medical services because of patients failing to take their medicine. A website, InnovationRx, wishes to help people remember to take their medications and help this problem. By simply signing up for the service, those who have input their medical prescriptions into the system can be called, texted or emailed when it is time for them to take a prescription. The service also sends reminders as to when the prescriptions need to be filled. Other benefits on the site: a prescription diary and a tool for testing drug to drug and drug to food interactions, as well as a photo archive of medicine.
