YOURmeds started out making patient-friendly prescription labels, charts and reports, with the aim of making complex medication regimes easier to understand and manage. Over 5 million people in England currently live with at least one Long Term Condition (LTC) with many having two or more. This means that medication is often complex and difficult to manage. Our labels make it easier to understand what medications you are taking, when you need to take them, and they are dispensed and delivered by your local pharmacy. We have taken out the stress and worry for you. Today we have some 20,000 patients using our service, and more come on board every month.
In trying to make medication more manageable, we understand that people have difficulty in taking their medication. According to the World Health Organisation, up to 50% of all medication is not taken as prescribed worldwide. For specific conditions such as Heart Failure, this figure rises to almost 70%, putting the patient at risk and increasing costs substantially to the NHS. There are many reasons why people don't take their medication, and forgetfulness and needing support are two main ones. This is why we created YOURmeds: to help you to take your medication regularly and have the support of loved ones or carers to help you through the journey.
YOURmeds was built to help people become more adherent and designed to help connect families and carers. Our family members use it, our customers use it and we know it works! Those using YOURmeds today, remember to take their medication accurately more than 70% of the time, helping them to live independently and enjoy their lives.
YOURmeds is made up of a small dedicated team that has built and patented this solution. We work closely with the NHS, doctors, pharmacies, social services and care agencies. We look forward to welcoming you on board!
Technology needs people to make it work - that's why we created a technology-driven solution based around the Family.
