MobileHelp® Launches New App for Health Management

Empowering its customers with new ways to manage their health, MobileHelp®, a leader in mobile Personal Emergency Response System (M-PERS) solutions, today announced the launch of a new medication reminder application.

Designed to help its customers maintain an independent lifestyle, the new application will provide users with an easy-to-use tool to manage their scheduled medications, in order to avoid missing one, or taking too much of another, either of which can be dangerous and expensive for seniors.

“We know medication errors cost the healthcare system billions of dollar per year, and that people older than 65 have a medication error rate nearly seven times greater than those younger than 65 – primarily because they simply have more medications to manage,” said Robert Flippo, MobileHelp CEO. “This application was designed to prevent those kinds of errors from happening.”

The new application works in conjunction with the company’s mobile personal emergency response system and the MobileHelp Connect™ web portal, and provides the following features and benefits for users:

  • A medication reminder alert through vocal announcement, which is pushed out through the MobileHelp cellular base station – acting as a medication “alarm clock;”
  • A view of important prescription information, such as dosage days and times;
  • The ability to add new prescription information; and
  • The ability to set and change medication schedules.

When the customer acknowledges the vocal medication reminder with a push of the device’s reset button, the main dashboard of the MobileHelp Connect web portal will immediately reflect the updated information, giving users and authorized caregivers the ability to track medication adherence.

“Our customers consistently tell us they want tools to help them take control of their own health management,” said Flippo. “This new application will allow them to better manage their medications, giving them – and their loved ones – peace of mind around one of the more complicated aspects of maintaining a healthy and independent lifestyle.”

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.
