iMEDHealth

Apple’s 10th anniversary reveal, the iPhone X has made headlines since its recent release in November 2017. Equipped with 5.8-inch, high definition (OLED) display, 3D camera, facial recognition and a glass body it is safe to say it hasn’t disappointed iPhone users.

Representatives from Apple say that the concept behind iPhone X embodies the ‘biggest technological leap forward’ since the launch of the first iPhone ten years ago. It sets a new precedence for the development of iPhones in the future as well.

The display screen is by far the most attractive feature of the iPhone. It impresses with a super retina display stretched across the length and width of the phone to amplify the mobile experience for its users. This is the largest screen that has been introduced in the iPhone till date.

The unveiling of the new iPhone X has created quite a stir in the field of mobile app development.  Most apps are compatible with IOS software and are designed in accordance with its features along with consumer preferences.

Medication reminder app for iPhone X

Smartphone health applications like medication reminder apps are quickly filling up the app store and gaining popularity.  A study published in BMJ suggests that the growing number of pill reminder apps indicates their potential use as effective tools to fight the global problem of non-compliance to medicines. iMEDTracker is the best pill reminder system available in the app store that will not only help you keep track of your medicine schedule but will serve as your virtual caregiver throughout the day!

Why is medicine adherence so important?

Not so fun facts!

  • 20% to 80% of patients make mistakes in taking medication
  • Up to 60% of patients stop taking medications before the instructed time
  • 10 to 25% of hospital and nursing home admissions are due to lack of adherence
  • Non-adherence causes 125,000 deaths per year

Your health should come first at all costs. Taking your medicines exactly when you need them, is trivial for a swift and complete recovery. Acute, short-lived conditions such as the flu and other viral infections often require a course of antibiotics. Doctor’s recommendations can easily slip your mind during a busy day and pills are missed. This will not only lead to prolonged illness but can lead to antibiotic resistance as well!

Antibiotic resistance is one of the world’s most pressing health concerns today. Misuse of antibiotics can cause bacteria to resist the effects of antibiotics within the body.  Infections or illnesses that could be easily treated by antibiotics turn into dangerous infections and may even lead to unwanted complications that become more difficult to treat.

Individuals suffering from chronic conditions like inflammatory bowel disease and diabetes mellitus often take life-long medicines in order to control their symptoms. About 75% of adults with a chronic condition admit to either skipping or missing a dose in the past year.

Excuses such as ‘I simply forgot’, ‘I ran out of pills before my refill was due’, ‘I couldn’t get a refill on time’ or ‘I didn’t understand how to take the medicines’ are quite common, particularly among senior citizens and patients of the geriatric population who try to manage their medicines on their own, without assistance.

 

Why is non- adherence to medicines such a big problem?

The burden of chronic disease is rising worldwide, particularly affecting industrialized nations.  Conditions such as hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes mellitus and obesity are beginning to take a toll on the economy in terms of healthcare costs.

Non-adherence to medicines is not only a health scare but can be a threat to your overall wellbeing. Research suggests that more than 40% of patients endure significant risks by ignoring, forgetting or misunderstanding healthcare advice. The inability to follow doctor’s recommendations may be attributed to the following factors:

  • Unable to afford medicine
  • Forgetfulness
  • Busy work schedule
  • Unable to maintain regular follow-ups
  • Mix-up in medicine regimen
  • Lack of needed assistance or extra help
  • Forgetting to refill stock
  • Unwanted adverse effects of medicine
  • Refusal to comply due to alternative treatment options
  • Didn’t understand medicine label
