Adhere to your medication regimen and stay healthy
Many people, especially those with chronic conditions, often struggle to adhere to complex medication regimens. Studies have shown that medication non-adherence for the chronically ill is 50% or higher1, resulting in increased risk of hospitalization for many conditions such as diabetes2. Tools to help you manage your diseases play an important role in keeping you healthy, empowering you to take ownership of your diseases and maintain healthy behaviors.
With Dosecast, you can track and adhere to the most complex medication regimen on your smartphone or tablet with just a few taps, wherever you are.
Keep your caregivers in the loop
For the 1 in 4 Americans who now have multiple chronic conditions, adherence presents a particular challenge3. Drug regimens for those with multiple chronic conditions are more complex. Multiple specialists often treat the same patient and need to coordinate care, yet they are often affiliated with different institutions or clinics that do not share patient records. In general, as the number of chronic conditions in an individual increases, the risks of mortality, unnecessary hospitalizations, adverse drug events, duplicative tests, and conflicting medical advice increases4.
With Dosecast, you always have your complete medication history on your smartphone or tablet, enabling clinicians to coordinate care by viewing the medication list and adherence record at a glance to take action.
Stay ahead of refills
Keeping a steady supply of your medications on hand can be a challenge, particularly for those with chronic illnesses. Refills can take up to 2-3 weeks to obtain if a new prescription must be issued from your doctor’s office and filled at the pharmacy. As a result, it is critical to be able to accurately track the quantities of medication remaining.
Dosecast tracks the remaining quantity of each medication as you take it and delivers a refill alert when running low. It also tracks the number of refills remaining, alerting you when a new prescription is needed.
