Memo24 - Voice Reminders and Alert Service for Medication Adherence.

05/11/2014

Allow us to introduce Memo24, a solution developed by a young start-up company based in Warsaw and Brussels to "improve medication adherence". The solution is specifically geared towards the elderly suffering from memory loss. By improving medication adherence, we can avoid serious health complications, improve patients' independence and overall quality of life, and reduce healthcare systems' costs due to medication non-compliance.
Numerous studies have already proven the effectiveness of voice reminders in improving medication adherence, unfortunately until now there was no readily available and effective tool for everyone to use. The Memo24 online tool fills indeed this gap.

What is Memo24:
Memo24 is a voice reminder and alert system intended for medication intake compliance and adherence. The primary recipients for such reminders are elderly for whom SMS notifications or carrying an extra electronic reminder device are not viable and practicable solutions. Memo24 is non-intrusive and web-based, accessible to anyone who has an online account. Memo24 allows you to automatically place a phone call with some text message you have defined to be played to a callee. In 2006, there were 26.6 million people worldwide with Alzheimer's disease, and Alzheimer's is predicted to affect 1 in 85 people globally by 2050 (Brookmeyer R, Johnson E, Ziegler-Graham K, Arrighi HM. Forecasting the global burden of Alzheimer's disease . Alzheimer's & Dementia. 2007 [Retrieved 18 June 2008];3(3):186 91). Given this fact, Memo24 is particularly suitable for elderly persons suffering from memory loss (such as Alzheimer's disease patients). In fact, many European and international studies have proven already the effectiveness of voice reminders in reducing the risk of people not taking their medications and thus reducing the risks related to health complications.
