[prMac.com] Ottawa, Canada - HYBSW today is pleased to announce MedsList 1.4 for iOS, a major update to their Medical app that allows users to easily keep a record of every prescription medication taken, the dosage, frequency, and the prescribing physician. In addition, the app keeps track of patient allergies, as well as foods, drugs, and activities that may need to be avoided when taking a particular medication. The app contains no drug information; patients and caregivers must enter all information. Users may input, modify, and delete data from the following personalized lists: Medication, History, Avoid, Allergies, and Sort by time of day (list of all medications taken at each of six dosing times: AM, midAM, Noon, PM, latePM, and Night).
Designed for the maximum in simplicity and ease of use, MedsList does not track medications, remind patients to take medication, or provide drug information. It does provide an ideal format in which to create a permanent drug record that can be consulted at any time. Medications are easily entered into a scrollable list, and users may enter the following information for each: Name (of drug), Doctor (prescribing physician), Dosage (amount of drug taken each time, e.g., one tablet), Start (date of beginning the drug), End (date of ending the drug), and Dosing Time(s) (number and time of doses per day). Start and End dates are conveniently input via the Apple picker, or infinite odometer display. Dosing Times are quickly entered by touching items on a checklist.
Once input, the scrollable Medications list is highly readable with medications grouped by prescribing doctor. The app operates in portrait mode, and each medication occupies its own large cell, which includes related information. Users may choose to show or hide dosing times by accessing the Settings Menu. Selecting the SortList Button from the bottom tab bar brings up a scrolling list of drugs and dosages. There are six tabbed buttons corresponding to six dosing times, and only one button may be active.
Besides serving as a practical tool for keeping personal medical information, MedsList keeps invaluable information in case of an emergency. In addition to the patient's medication schedule, the app provides medical personnel with vital information concerning allergies, as well as potential foods, drugs, and activities that may be contraindicated with particular medications. The Avoid List provides empty text fields to enter the item to be avoided, the reason, and the date. Similarly, the Allergies List provides empty text fields to enter the various symptoms, the allergen, the severity, and the date. The app contains integrated functionality for printing individual lists or all lists, and e-mailing individual lists or all lists in PDF format.
