Created by Doctors, New Platform OMyMeds.com Turns Online Medication Records Into Versatile Patient-Friendly Tools That Patients Will Actually Use

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - DEMO Fall 2011 -- Medication Intelligence, developer of medication management solutions for patients on multiple medications, was awarded the AARP Scholarship to present at DEMO Fall 2011, a national, invitation-only conference renowned for identifying and launching groundbreaking technologies.

Medication Intelligence showcased its innovative platform OMyMeds.com which allows health insurance companies and pharmacy chains to convert members' online medication lists to versatile patient-friendly tools that help patients manage their medications, be better educated, and more engaged with their healthcare.

"Most medication management tools are ineffective," says Medication Intelligence' President, Dr. Eugene Spiritus. "In a report sponsored by the California Healthcare Foundation, less than 5% of patients use a personal health record and we believe that one of the reasons for this is that they require the user to manually enter and update medications. For the twenty million seniors on more than five medications this is no solution."

By taking accurate and current medication lists directly from the insurance and pharmacy databases, and converting them to patient-friendly tools, Medication Intelligence improves compliance and medication adherence, benefitting the insurance companies and pharmacies who gain when patients have fewer hospital admissions, less adverse events and better outcomes.

The list of medication management tools will include:

  • Visual Calendar with pill images that reminds patients which medications they need to take, at which point in the day, and helps them fill their pill boxes.

  • Medication Card with useful and concise information that serves as a "cheat sheet" to quickly inform the patient of the most important facts concerning their medications.

  • Key Tag that allows appropriate medical personnel to gain access to members' medication lists in case of emergency.

  • Mobile application intended for physicians taking care of patients on multiple medications, assuring that the medications they prescribe do not result in duplications or drug-drug interactions.

  • Advanced analytics that measure frequent drug combinations

"The patient-facing platform is just the beginning," says Onne Ganel, Medication Intelligence's CEO. "By requiring doctors to download our app in order to view their patients' medications, we will comply with privacy standards and gain access to a valuable market segment. We are planning an entire suite of services aimed at doctors, pharmaceutical companies, and other entities that gain when patients adhere to their medications."
