Summary

A tool that reminds the user to take medications (and health supplements) on time. The 'Care4Family' facility allows the user to check on whether family members are taking their medication as prescribed, and to encourage them to do so. The 'Care4Charity' facility allows donations to be sent to selected NGOs. The app will work with any service provider or service plan, and on almost any mobile phone (including feature phones, as well as smartphones). It contains photographs of 20,000-plus medicines (including generics), to help with users' identification of medicines. Graphs on progress at taking medication on time can be shared with healthcare providers or family and friends. An FDA-registered Class 1, 510K-exempt medical device. A European version will be made available later in 2014.

Reviews

Reviewer: HIV Positive Magazine, October/November 2013, page 3, USA
Review: "This free mobile platform and website is designed to help people stay on schedule with their medications, with special features such as ‘Care4Family’ and ‘Care4Charity’, to support and motivate users to take their medications regularly. Approximately 50% of patients with chronic illnesses do not take their medication as prescribed. There are many reasons people don’t take their medications, but the most commonly-cited reason is that they simply forget. With Care4Today, people can set up reminders for any kind of prescription or over-the-counter medication, nutritional supplement, or any other activity. The platform uses secure, two-way messaging on mobile phones, and each reminder message prompts a response that is recorded in the user’s adherence report. Users can view reports summarising adherence, and share the information with their healthcare provider."

Reviewer: AIDS Institute, USA
Review: "We at the Florida Consortium for HIV/AIDS Research (FCHAR) have piqued the interest of Janssen Therapeutics in funding a Care4Today evaluation project. Care4Today Mobile Health Manager, version 2.0, is a free, secure, two-way messaging platform, mobile app and website provided by Janssen Therapeutics. Adherence reminder notices are texted to the individual. Complementary tools, including personalised follow-up by healthcare staff or case managers, are provided to help encourage taking medication on time. The study would examine the effectiveness of the Care4Today programme. The dependent variable would be viral load. If VL becomes undetectable within one year of project implementation, it will be counted as a success. Detectable VL would be counted as unsuccessful, and would be quantified according to VL level."

Reviewer: Person living with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, UK
Review: "Care4Today has a good and simple system which allows you to put in your medication requirements once, and then it will remind you to take them - which saves me having to think about exact timings of tablets all the time."
