YOURmeds

By Priti Patel, YOURmeds Added 4th Dec, 2020 Updated 17th Nov, 2021

YOURmeds enables people to take the right medication at the right time with support from their network of family and friends.  YOURmeds puts the user back in charge of their own medication increasing adherence rates to over 80%, improving health outcome and increasing the independence of users.  The real time data collected is used by councils across the UK to inform care packages and provides a daily cognitive assessment tool.  We operate an open API and are happy to push our medication into other platforms including health monitoring to provide a 360 degree picture on a user's outcomes.

About

YOURmeds puts the user back in charge of their medication with the support of their network.  The smart pack records when the right medication is accessed, if it is missed, taken late or too early or if multiple medicines are accessed.  A user can nominate up to 5 people from their network of family and friends to support them with their adherence.  10 minutes after the initial alarm goes off, the first supporter is informed via an app that links the supporter to the user.  Every 10 minutes a new supporter is informed for up to an hour.  One in four adherent rounds is due to a supporter intervention, YOURmeds is the only medication management system that uses supporters in this way.  Supporters can see what medicines were due yesterday, today and tomorrow via the app and make an in app call to encourage the user to take their medicine.

YOURmeds is dispensed by the local pharmacy in full working order into the patients home on a weekly basis, eliminating the risk of carers and family filling pill dispensers and making mistakes.  The pharmacist can remotely adjust timings of medication.

Our real time data can be used as a daily cognitive check on a user, a drop in adherence usually indicates that some additional support is required.  The technology takes away the burden of responsiblity from the primary carer by putting the user back in charge of their medication and enabling a wider network of people to support the user.
