How does the medication reminder service work?
Programmed to match each client’s medication schedule, the premier handheld device electronically reminds patients to take medications, follow through on treatment tests (blood pressure or blood sugar), or any important recurring appointments. Additionally family members or professional caregivers can access the family caregiver app to send messages directly to the system and receive important notifications, including when the system leaves a premises and arrives at another.
