Healthovation - Medication Management and Reminder System

Posted by Ronald Jonash on Oct 11, 2019 11:48:00 AM

The MedaCheck story began in 2012 when Jeffrey and Steve applied to a community innovation program that looked to challenge the biggest problems in health care. By building a very easy to use cell phone and tablet app, MedaCheck saw a great amount of success in area hospitals that led to increased awareness of how health care was moving from the clinical environment to the home.

From there the team at MedaCheck built a platform of comprehensive hardware and software solutions that work alongside healthcare professionals to help educate, manage, and remind patients of their ongoing prescriptions and treatments as well as collecting data from patients in their homes.
