MedCoach app aids patients with medication management

SAN DIEGO — Tracking medication adherence and connecting to pharmacies when it's time to refill prescriptions are among the capabilities of a new iPhone and iPad application made by GreatCall.

GreatCall announced the launch of MedCoach, a medication management app that the company said would help customers better manage their overall well-being for free.

Other features of the app include “Shake for Help,” which allows users to get help with a topic they’re reading about by shaking the device; daily, 24-hour access to live, personal assistance via email; secure storage of personal information; and a medication lookup option that provides access to the First Databank national drug database.
