I was recently introduced to the Care4Today™ Mobile Health Manager – Janssen Research & Development, LLC(iTunes link). Here’s a short video demo of the application:

I’ve long said that medication reminder is one area of mHealth where there was a lot of opportunity. I haven’t dug into the Care4Today app itself, but it seems like they’ve really put a lot of effort into to creating this app to solve the problem of medication adherence.

They also put together this video which almost feels like a feature story from NBC’s Rock Center:

Maybe I’m a bit of a sucker for this application, because my wife just discovered that she’ll be taking a drug every day for the rest of her life. So, the idea of making sure she remembers to take it is on my mind. I’ll have her try it out and report back on the experience.
