Did you know that more than 50% of people don’t take their medication properly? Good medication management is the key to staying healthy, but non-adherence is a growing problem. PillTime is a new online service with a solution. We are supporting healthcare professionals to devise the best care for patients. We want to help patients, professionals and the NHS.
Chronic illness is on the rise. Medication can be complex for patients with long-term conditions. When patients take multiple medications, mistakes are often made. Sorting doses can get confusing. Plus, patients may forget to take them on time.
However, errors occur at other stages, too. Recent reports show that millions of errors are made every year in the UK.
PillTime offers a unique service. We tackle every stage of the process. Our technology reduces the risk of human error in dispensing. Our pouch solution makes administration simple.
PillTime is ideal for GPs and carers who are trying to promote self-care. We are supporting healthcare professionals to improve patient outcomes and reduce NHS costs. Check out our healthcare professionals blog for more.
