Mobile Health Manager


Improving medication adherence through mobile technology

In managing chronic conditions, medication adherence is key to achieving better outcomes. Care4Today Mobile Health Manager is a free, mobile app that reminds people when to take their medications. Patients can connect to their healthcare providers and caregivers, encouraging them to take medications on schedule.

Mobile Health Manager is designed to empower patients and help enhance their connection with their healthcare providers.
The app helps patients track their self-reported medication usage and share it with physicians, family, and caregivers.

The Challenge


When people fail to take their medication, they may be at risk of serious complications, a worsening of previously controlled conditions, and even hospital admission. In the US, medication-related hospitalisations—including admissions due to poor medication adherence—costs an estimated $100 billion per year5.

Mobile Health Manager is designed to improve medication non-adherence by empowering patients to track their own progress.
