Start-up vendor Independa Inc. has introduced Smart Reminders, a service to ensure elderly patients living at home are taking their medications.

A patient's child or other caregiver can enter medication information, medical appointments, and social events/birthdays/anniversaries into a secure Web site. The patient then receives a telephone reminder call and the caregiver is alerted if the reminder was not received and appropriately acted upon. Reminders also can be sent via e-mail or text messages.

Caregivers also have access to medication adherence reports. More information on the service from the San Diego-based vendor is available at
