Getting Meds Reminders by Phone



Basking Ridge, N.J.-based Verizon Wireless is offering an application designed to offer consumers drug information and medication reminders on their smart phones.

The Pill Phone software is a mobile version of the medical reference guide the Pill Book. It offers information on more than 1,800 medications and prescription drugs commonly prescribed by physicians, including indications, dosing, side effects, drug interactions and photos. Consumers also can schedule reminders for when they need to take their medications as well as dosing instructions.

The system was developed by Vocel, a San Diego-based mobile phone software vendor. Verizon users can purchase and download the application at pillphone.com. It's available for a $3.99 monthly service charge.
