How it Works
Patients or caregivers register their medications, doses, vitals, medical conditions and allergies in the Portal with their favorite tablet or personal computer.
Patients may add information pertinent to their care and invite those in their circle of care to share data, to remotely monitor and to communicate at anytime.
When it is time to take your medications, a reminder is sent by direct push notification (RxPense Mobile App), SMS or Email to the patient, or any of those in their circle of care who opt-in to receive these reminders. Once taken, the patient taps a link in the email or SMS to register their consumption. If a dose is forgotten, a reminder is sent out 3 times until the dose can no longer be consumed. At that time, or whenever a dose is skipped or missed, caregivers will receive an alert and can then call, visit or video chat with the patient.
At anytime, the patient may record their vitals to keep a history of their health information over time.
Remote Patient Monitoring and Control
The RxPense® Portal is an integral part of the RxPense® ecosystem. It provides secure, cloud-based access to patient profiles, regardless of location. The cloud securely hosts our Web Portal which bridges the Patient with Caregivers, Physicians and Pharmacists. The Portal fully supports Medipense concept of the Home Health by providing access to data and monitoring, 24×7.
