[prMac.com] Raleigh, NC - Announcing that Cris Moffitt Apps, the developers of MediMinder, has released the app's latest update. The application provides a valuable tool for keeping track of medication details, along with doctor and pharmacy contact information. MediMinder can easily be used for patients wanting to check their next dose time or to quickly supply important, sometimes lifesaving facts to doctors, pharmacists and emergency personnel.
The MediMinder app is a very practical program that can help many. All of the information about a prescribed drug is listed and stored within the application for easy retrieval when needed. This is particularly handy for people who take more than one medication per day and need to check the next time a dose is due, or the elderly, who may get confused about what they are taking or when.
It was that type of a situation that brought the MediMinder app into being. Owner, Cris Moffitt, wanted to make things a little easier for his dad, "My father was dealing with a critical illness and was on multiple medications at the same time. I was looking for something to help him out." Moffitt's compassion for his father resulted in a tool that offers helpful benefit to others.
People caring for the elderly will find MediMinder particularly helpful, especially if they don't live with them. Once all of the information is recorded in the app, it can remain there for safekeeping until needed. A trip to the emergency room will go a little easier if all of the patient's drug information can be quickly retrieved.
MediMinder keeps track of all the necessary information:
* Next dosage time
* Color of the medicine
* Description of the medicine (is it a pill, tablet, caplet, capsule, liquid?)
* Schedule* Refill date
* Physician Name, Address, phone number
* Pharmacy Name, phone number
Working with the app is easy. It has touchscreen controls and adding a new medication is as simple as tapping the plus sign to start and then the save button once the information is input by the user. Users can opt for having at-a-glance reminders for their next dose time show up on the main screen. This is new with the latest update and should be a helpful detail, especially for those who can't remember when they're supposed to take their next pill.
* Easy to use interface
* Stores important medication data
* Stores doctor and pharmacy contact information
* Optional main screen reminders of dose times
It's easy to see why MediMinder is perfect for emergencies but in order for it to work, people need to buy it and download it before an emergency is likely to happen. After that, it's worth taking a few minutes to make sure that accurate information is filled in and ready to go. It isn't just people needing to track their own meds, the ill and the elderly that can benefit from this app. Pet parents can use it for detailing their pet's medication and veterinarian's information, too. MediMinder has a lot to offer anyone. What it gives the most of though, is peace of mind.

* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later
