Time’s Money magazine in January 2019 featured Medisafe among a select few “Best Apps for Older Adults You Should Download Right Now.”
Medisafe was listed at the top of a notable list of top-tier apps, including Google Maps. Among the reasons for the Medisafe selection was that TIME cited Pew Research Center statistics showing that 42% of Americans 65 and older use smartphones and 70% use the Internet.
Money cited Medisafe’s 4.7 rating on the iOS App store, and its medication reminder and Medfriend feature, which allows a caregiver to know if a person has taken their daily dosage or not. If not, they are encouraged to check in.
“Recognition by TIME is one more proof that Medisafe has become a ‘must have’ app for older adults, and anyone taking medication on a regular basis,” said Omri Shor, Medisafe founder and CEO.
Medisafe includes a number of features which older adults find particularly useful:
- Medfriend – allows Medisafers to have a friend or family member get updated so they can reach out via phone, text, or email if a medication dose is missed.
- Drug interaction checker – alerts Medisafers in the US when there may be a potentially harmful interaction between two meds they are taking. More than 110,000 alerts have already been sent to Medisafe users.
- Measurements – enables users to track their heart rate, glucose levels, and more than 20 other measurements, all in one place.
