Care4Today, Janssen Healthcare Innovation's app, helps patients track medication regimens and provides appointment reminders. Available for a variety of smartphones and tablets, the app sends secure messages to users reminding them to take medications as directed, refill prescriptions and visit physicians. This includes over-the-counter drugs and nutritional supplements, such as vitamins.
"We have identified improving medication adherence as one of our key initiatives," said Diego Miralles, head of Janssen, in a release. "The Care4Today Mobile Adherence platform can help overcome the number one barrier to consumers taking their medications by providing customized reminders delivered via secure messaging directly to their cell phone, a device that most people carry with them at all times."
