If you have to take medication regularly or have lots of doctors appointments coming up, you may sometimes get things mixed up which can have serious consequences. If you ever asked yourself if you have taken the medication of the day already, or if you still need to take it, you may find an application like RX Medicine Reminder helpful as it helps you keep track of all things medical.
You can use the Android application to keep track of medication that you need to take as it will remind you whenever it is time to take it. That in itself may be helpful to some as it removes the need to keep track of it on your own or in another way. The application on the other hand does more than that, as you can also use it to keep track of doctor appointments so that you do not miss them. Add to that a handy database of information that you can make use of and tracking medical supplies, and you got a winner here.More about that later, lets take a look at the app in detail.
First thing that you may want to do is add at least one patient to the app. Here you can add the patient's name, birth day, blood type and notes. Since you are not limited to one patient, you can for instance add your family as patients to be in full control over all doctor appointments and medication. Or, if you are working in health care, for instance as a nurse, you may want to add all your patients to it and their medication so that you never forget to hand out the medicine.
Once you have added patients it is time to add medication. This is a one time process as well which can be useful in the long run. Here you add the name, type, available quantity and minimum quantity you feel comfortable with so that you always know when it is time for getting a refill.
You can now start adding medication reminders by linking patients with medication and day, time and dosage. You can for instance configure the program to notify you at a specific time of the day that it is time to take a pill. The program supports varying dosages for medicine so that you are free to configure it as you see fit in the program.
Now that we have covered the medication side of things, it is time to look at the doctor's side of things. You can add doctors to the application so that you have a list of doctors available. You can add names and contact information, specialties and notes for each doctor you add to the app. This in itself is useful as you can quickly look up the information when needed. The application lets you create doctor's appointments which works in a similar fashion as medication alerts. The app will remind you of upcoming appointments so that you do not have to keep track of things manually anymore.
You can - and should - password protect the application to prevent access from third parties. You can furthermore export reminders to a pdf file which you can then print out and use as a "to-do" list.
