The useful app to help you manage your medication intake, even if you have a complex medication schedule.
RePill, the first Swiss app with an integrated medicine database, was developed by Absolute Development AG with the kind support of Gilead Sciences and Pfizer AG. Even extensive medication schedules can now be easily managed with RePill.
The importance of regular medication intake
Even very effective medication is no use if it is not taken regularly. This statement sounds obvious, but it is an important topic in medicine – the problem of patients’ so-called “compliance”. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), only 50% of patients on average who suffer from chronic diseases show good compliance. Medication compliance is particularly important in the case of chronically ill patients. Reasons for non-compliance include a lack of awareness of the importance of adherence to treatment as well as forgetfulness.
Comprehensive solution for patients
RePill is an app available for Apple iPhones and iPod Touches that helps patients to take their medication regularly. A better compliance increases the chances of successful treatment. RePill provides a simple way to manage a medication schedule, the exact name, prescribed dose and time of intake are listed for each medicine. A prominent feature of the app is that it is easy to use. For example, you can scan the barcode of a medicine by holding the iPhone camera over the barcode for a short time. RePill recognises the medicine and registers it automatically. Then you only have to select the package size and the dosage. The app manages the patient’s medication stock and prescriptions, providing a graphical medication intake report.
As of now, you can find RePill free of charge in the Apple App Store. It is available in English, German and French.
