Doctors prescribe medications to their patients when a health condition requires treatment with pharmaceuticals. When patients fail to take their medications as prescribed, that health problem will rapidly spiral out of control, causing complications that could land the patient in the hospital in serious condition. South Africa is currently suffering from high rates of re-hospitalizations and emergency room treatments for people who do not take their medication properly. Medical reminders received as a phone message alert will not only reduce health costs but will also significantly decrease death rates annually caused by people who fail to remember to take their medication.
Pill Pal understands how easy it is to get caught up in everyday tasks and those unexpected little emergencies that make us forget things we should remember–like taking our medication. Chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular illnesses need specially formulated medication to prevent systemic diseases from further harming the individual’s health. For example, if a diabetic needs medication to regulate their blood glucose levels and he or she forgets to take even one dose, their sugar levels could plunge or spike so acutely they could faint, develop shock or even lapse into a coma.
