Scheduling and Recording Your Doses
Keeping track of your prescription schedule is important, as each dose is timed to be taken based on your body’s interaction with the active ingredients. If a medication is metabolized in your body within 9 hours, for example, you’ll usually take your next dose every 6-8 hours or so.
Just as important as knowing when to take your medication is keeping a record of medications taken -- if you get prescribed something new to help ease symptoms but you aren’t taking the doses properly, you may have trouble telling your doctor whether the meds worked at your next appointment.
Need a place to schedule and track your medication? The Hero app automatically generates adherence records as medication is dispensed from the Hero dispenser, removing the need to manually keep track on your own. These records are accessible to you from anywhere, making them a great option for loved ones and caregivers alike, especially when it comes to sharing data with healthcare providers.
Planning For Trips
Going out of town while on medication can be a little tricky. It is easy to forget your medication when you are outside of your home and in an unfamiliar place, especially with the excitement of packing for something like a spontaneous overnight vacation.
When you are creating your packing list, it’s important to double check that you have your medication packed. In most cases, you won’t be able to replace prescription medications if they are forgotten or misplaced.
One of the benefits of a pill pack is its portability, as its relatively small packaging allows your medication to be packed away in a small area, and if you’re traveling by air, easy to get through TSA without extra steps, if any. Still, it’s important to take extra caution while traveling, since schedules are often altered and your mind is often focused on your surroundings more than your medication.
Hero can help ensure your meds are still taken with Vacation Mode. After dispensing your pills ahead of time to take with you, the Hero app still sets reminders so that you don’t forget your next dose in the midst of having a good time.
Sharing Your Medication Information
Caregivers and healthcare providers play a massive role in the lives of their patients. From caregivers responsible for loved ones at home to healthcare professionals helping to improve quality of life, these individuals take on the responsibility of caring for someone else’s wellbeing.
To best assist your caregiver and your healthcare provider when you don’t feel well, it’s important to share as much information with them as you can about your symptoms, how well prescription or OTC medications may be helping with those symptoms, and what medications and supplements you’re already taking so they can properly assess what other options are available to help you.
With the assistance of the Hero app, medication information can always be shared with your healthcare provider and caregivers by displaying your detailed medication schedule and personalized adherence reports, so everyone is always in the loop.
The Verdict on Pill Packs
Pill packs have made proper dosing just a little easier, allowing you to grab one pill at a time, see which doses you have or haven’t taken, and see how much medication you have left before a refill is needed.
But with only a small percentage of medications offered in this blister pack setup, Hero’s automatic dispenser and free app can help you and your caregiver manage all of your meds without a sweat. With simple setup, ease of use, and accessible data, Hero will give you and your loved ones peace of mind that everything is taken care of.
