MediSafe Project's co-founding brothers started the company when their diabetic father double-dosed on insulin and suffered an emergency. They understood if they were more involved in reviewing their father's daily medication and insulin regimens, it could change his behavior for the better and help him get healthier.MediSafe Project reduces hospitalization and mortality, and increases medication compliance and health. It allows families, friends and caretakers to have peace of mind their loved ones are taking medications on time, even when they can't be there.
As innovation leaders solving the hazard of medication non-compliance, MediSafe Project's goal is increasing the power of family & friend support systems to cause positive, healthy outcomes for each other.
We are creating eco-systems around patients that support their medication compliance, leading to positive, systemic population health improvements throughout society.
We are also easing financial burdens for all elements of the healthcare industry - including governments, HMOs, insurers, policy holders, pharmaceutical companies, pharmacies and employers.

- "50% of US population takes medication regularly - among them,
only half of patients typically take their medications as prescribed." -
More than 700,000 people were hospitalized because they skipped or took incorrect dosages in the US alone in 2008. Statistically, every 19 minutes an American dies because of medication non-compliance. Whether they are elderly, diabetic, or suffering from a temporary illness, compliance is critical to patients' health.
We know that medication compliance is a critical factor to the success of treatments and medications. We also know the impact of non-compliance reaches far beyond the health of patients, to include burgeoning healthcare and long-term care costs. We know the barriers to compliance: memory issues, lack of support and lack of education. But what's behind the barriers? What motivates patients? How can behavior be changed.
People taking medication are typically not alone. A parent, child, spouse, or someone else close to them is taking some level of responsibility. Still, for both the caretaker and the patient, it's hard to remember every medication on time.
MediSafe Project has researched and developed family and friend-enhanced support to improve medication and treatment compliance for people with all kinds of medical conditions. Our work has shown us that medication non-compliance stems from a combination of individual AND condition-specific factors.
- Before you've practiced, the theory is useless. After you've practiced, the theory is obvious -
An iOS and Android mobile app and cloud-synced database providing medication and treatment compliance program for patients, their family and friends support systems, also offering many benefits to instituional elements of the healthcare system.
The MediSafe Project provides an easy-to-use interface to help people comply with their medication needs. It's also a way for supportive families, friends and caretakers to identify when patients have taken medication and be alerted when they did not.
In early 2013, the system will become accessible to people without smartphones, via an automated phone system. Patients will be able to record medication doses via touchtone, and caretakers will be able to receive alerts via incoming, automated calls when patients appeared to have missed a dose. This expansion should help a larger number of elderly patients and young children use MediSafe Project to keep their loved ones informed about their medication regimens.
