HUNT VALLEY, Md., Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Medicine-On-Time launched a new website that connects consumers to pharmacists offering its innovative prescription packaging designed to simplify the process of taking multiple medications. In addition to free trials and background information, sortmymeds.com offers consumers the ability to find the closest pharmacy offering the Medicine-On-Time service. 250 pharmacies from around the country are participating in this consumer launch with the expectation that additional pharmacies will be added as the program grows in popularity.
Data suggests that roughly half of the 2 billion prescriptions filled each year in America are not taken correctly resulting in increased hospitalizations and admissions to nursing homes, and billions of dollars in avoidable healthcare costs.
"We are launching sortmymeds.com to connect consumers to local pharmacists who offer simplified tools that ensure consumers take the right medications at the right time," said Ian Salditch, CEO of Medicine-On-Time. "This website is part of our broader efforts aimed at helping people maintain their independence and enjoy better health," he added.
Medicine-On-Time has recruited pharmacists from across the country to offer a more effective alternative for people taking multiple medications. Using Medicine-On-Time, pharmacists sort and organize medications into personalized pill cups labeled with the day, date and time to take them.
Medicine-On-Time produces an average medication compliance rate of 95.7%, and has been scientifically proven to provide real protection against nursing home admissions. Medicine-On-Time has been used to fill over 50 million prescriptions.
Medicine-On-Time's mission is to improve patient quality of life by providing a common-sense solution to the problem of medication management; to simplify the administration of pharmaceutical care for caregivers and other healthcare professionals; to reduce the rate of prescription medication misuse (medication non-adherence), which robs patients of their health and our national healthcare system of hundreds of billions of dollars annually.
